AIXM Management System

The objective of the Aeronautical Information Exchange Model (AIXM) is to ensure the provision of aeronautical information within the scope of Aeronautical Information Services (AIS) in a digital format. AIXM leverages the advantages of information engineering standards and supports the current and future requirements of aeronautical information systems. The scope of AIXM information includes procedures, airport and heliport areas, routes, airspaces, obstacles, navigation aids, etc. As with most data encoding standards covering aeronautical information, AIXM is based on XML (Extensible Markup Language) and has transitioned to GML (Geographic Markup Language) in its 5th version.

Developed by Haritaevi since the second quarter of 2022 and deployed in the third quarter of 2023, the AIXM Management System software consists of four main modules in its current version: Viewer, Converter, Editor, and Validator.


With the Viewer module, AIXM data can be viewed in both 2D and 3D formats, and editing can be performed on the data. Additionally, it is quite easy to view any Metadata layers within the data in this module. The module is user-friendly, supported by sample data.

With the Converter module, vector formatted (.shp and .kml) eTOD (Electronic Terrain and Obstacle Data), AMDB (Airport Mapping Database), and ASRN (Airport Surface Routing Network) data can be converted into AIXM and AMXM (Airport Mapping Exchange Model) formatted .xml data within seconds. The Converter module is structured according to international standards such as ICAO PANS-AIM, ICAO Annex 15, RTCA DO-272(D), RTCA DO-291(C), RTCA DO-276(C), and Eurocontrol TOD Manual 3.0. It is supported by sample data and data templates within the module. The eTOD, AMDB, and ASRN data created according to the data templates provided by Haritaevi and offered in the Converter module automatically generate Metadata content and include it in the AIXM and AMXM data structures during the conversion process.

The Editor module allows for modifications to the uploaded data, offered within both the Viewer and Validator modules, and enables the edited data to be exported within seconds.

The Validator module recognizes the schemas within AIXM and AMXM data, checks for compliance with standards, marks erroneous lines, and presents a report to the user. This module has no data size limit. Business Rules developments will also be included in the Validator module.

The software is web-based and can be accessed by users at aixm.haritaevi.com. In the current version, registered users can use the Viewer module for free. Other modules are available for a fee, with monthly, quarterly, and annual purchase options. Additionally, obtaining help from developers through the contact and feedback menus is quick and easy.

The software offers impressive speed thanks to its high-performance computing power and optimized data processing algorithms. Numerous vector-based data sets can now be converted to AIXM format in just a few seconds. This provides a significant advantage in the aviation sector by facilitating rapid decision-making for air navigation service providers and other aviation data experts, and supporting critical processes such as immediate updates.
