According to the requirements specified in Annex 15 of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), all ICAO participating states are to ensure the availability of terrain and obstacle data in electronic format.
Obstacle features can be represented as points, lines, or polygons, and terrain data can be added as a raster dataset. Reliable obstacle and terrain data for in-flight and ground-based applications are essential datasets for international civil aviation.
Haritaevi thinks that an e-TOD dataset should ideally provide all the data and meet all the requirements as specified in ICAO Doc 9881 for the area to be worked on. In this respect, an e-TOD dataset should ideally contain, as a whole, the raw data for the digital CAD data as the source of production, plans generated from this data, such as printed charts, maps, etc., and GIS data that can be finally used.
With the aeronautical studies carried out since 2014, Haritaevi has generated e-TOD data that can be processed in geographical information systems (GIS). We have been proudly delivering our resulting products to airports and civil aviation authorities according to the e-TOD standards required by ICAO and Eurocontrol.
