February 7, 2012

Washington D.C. – Luciad, a leader in high performance visualization for Geospatial Situational Awareness applications, announced the availability of the FAA AIXM 5 Viewer.

The AIXM 5 Viewer is an application developed by Luciad for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Access to the AIXM Viewer is available for AIXM Forum members; membership is free and open to all stakeholders.

The AIXM 5 viewer offers a solution for rapidly visualizing AIXM 5.0 and AIXM 5.1 data. The intuitive, easy-to-use interface, combined with a web-based one-click installation process, enables AIXM 5 Viewer users to efficiently view, manage and distribute Aeronautical Information Services data. The application provides a baseline reference to validate that the available data is compliant with the AIXM 5 standard. The AIXM 5 Viewer, developed with LuciadMap and Lucy, is the first intuitive graphical capability to accurately display geo-referenced AIXM 5.1 data in 2D & 3D.

“The AIXM 5 Viewer presents the AIXM 5.1 data in 2D, as well as in 3D, which is very valuable for visualizing complex Airspace aggregations”, said Eddy Porosnicu, senior AIM specialist at Eurocontrol. “In addition, it offers a timeline for analyzing the changes introduced by Digital NOTAM data, and all of this in a simple and crisp user interface. The built-in validation tool is very useful for checking the correctness of AIXM 5.1 data output from different systems. The AIXM 5 Viewer has the potential to boost the AIXM 5.1 implementations world-wide.”

“The FAA AIXM 5 Viewer provides users worldwide with all the capabilities needed to quickly visualize and understand AIXM 5 data“, said Lode Missiaen, CEO, Luciad. “The application is developed with Luciad technology and offers a viewer with high performance and high precision, and with full support for AIXM 5 data including Digital Notams.”
