Loading Geo-Ref plates

Postby MolsonB » Wed Dec 04, 2019 3:44 am

Can we load our own Geo-Ref plates? And by our own, I mean I can extract them from the Avare app. Which they are free there. Showing the airplane over the taxiway is a big bonus for me with the airport diagrams.

Are you expecting .tiff format? Same folder format as normal charts?

Interesting. The free FAA approach plates (pdf) have been geo-referenced for a few years now. Their airport diagrams are still not though. I'm trying out a script for that process.

Might have some outdated info here.

I can't physically test this till end of Jan when I head back to working on the plane, but what format is GRT looking for? pdf, tiff, png ?

The only georeferencing we support at the moment is Seattle Avionics, which is proprietary and kept in a separate database from the plate files. The FAA added georeferencing to some of their PDF's using a geospatial PDF standard. We have not added support for that in the EFIS.

Okay, that means I can stop trying to learn Perl tonight. lol.
Ah that's to bad about the FAA support.
I'll stick to using Android tablet then for mapping.
