Aerodrome Mapping Database (AMDB)

Aerodrome Mapping Database (AMDB)

An AMDB is a spatial database of an airport. An AMDB dataset describes the spatial layout of an aerodrome in terms of features (e.g. runways, taxiways, and parking stands) with geometry described as points, lines or polygons and with attributes (e.g. Surface type) providing further information. AMDBs are produced and exchanged as datasets using global standards and tools of mainstream Geographic Information System (GIS) technology.

AMDB represents a collection of aerodrome information that is organized and arranged for ease of electronic storage and retrieval in systems that supports aerodrome surface movements, training, charting, and planning.
