Creating the Holding Pattern Entry Diagram

The Holding Pattern Entry Diagram (HPED) tool creates holding pattern entry diagrams for designated holding pattern features in the current procedure.

  1. Start ArcMap.
  2. Ensure that the data model version is set to the AIS Charting model on the Data Management pane of the Production Properties dialog box.
  3. Ensure that your chart's data frame is set to the appropriate instance by right-clicking the data frame, selecting Properties, and clicking the Product Library tab.
    Data Frame Properties dialog box
  4. Click OK.

    The creation of an HPED is based on the data in the production database and the instance designated in the data frame properties. To designate a holding pattern feature for HPED creation, change the HPEntry_Code field on the holding pattern ProcedureLeg_C feature to Yes. The HPED tool will create an entry diagram for that procedure leg.

  5. On the main menu, click View > Layout View.
  6. On the main menu, click Customize > Toolbars > Aeronautical Terminal Procedures.
  7. Click the Holding Pattern Entry Diagram button Holding Pattern Entry Diagram on the Aeronautical Terminal Procedures toolbar.

    If information on the procedure where the HPED resides changes, and that information affects the HPED, you can regenerate it by clicking the Holding Pattern Entry Diagram button again.
