Smarter data means quick and accurate charts and navigation products

The accuracy and currency of geospatial data are vital to air safety.

But, updating aeronautical data for the production of flight charts and navigation products is historically a manual, labour-intensive process that nearly overwhelms the 28-day Aeronautical Information Regulation and Control (AIRAC) cycle.

Our rules-based technology for the management of geospatial data helps organisations automate traditionally time-consuming processes, improving production times and freeing up highly-skilled staff to focus where they can add the greatest value.

“1Spatial has a good understanding of what’s required and over the last couple of years we’ve developed a very collaborative relationship. It’s helped us massively. Not only does it save us a lot of time and money, but it means we end up with the best solution for our needs.”

No 1 AIDU feeds forces with accurate aeronautical information

1Spatial has enabled No 1 AIDU to improve the quality and consistency of their data by maintaining it in a single, central database, rather than numerous individual charts. Alongside the increased productivity, No 1 AIDU is also benefiting from substantial time and cost savings.

Specialists in the management of data

We work with clients around the world to automate traditionally time-consuming manual processes such as data validation, cleansing and integration, and chart or map generalisation.

Our technology turns experts’ knowledge into user-defined, user-managed rules that can be applied consistently, objectively and automatically to your aeronautical data. Automating these often routine tasks ensures that your best performance becomes your everyday, while your experts’ precious time can be focused on managing exceptions and driving innovation.

One client, the Royal Air Force’s Aeronautical Information Documents Unit (No 1 AIDU) reduced important data upload processes from 28 to just two days.

Data standards can also be easily applied. New and existing data can be tested against required standards as part of an automated validation process, before acceptance into the core database.

Importantly, new standards can be applied to existing data sets, with data automatically converted or updated to comply with these new standards.

We can also consolidate data from different sources and in different formats to ensure that you always have the best possible information available to create current, accurate navigational products.
