I do not see Visual approch charts for Belgian Microlight airfields
Would it be possible to use the following charts into Skydemon, and georeference them ?
These sites are available (and geo-referenced) in the following website:

thanks !


As far as I could tell these aren't even aviation maps at all. The ones I looked at appeared to be taken simply from Google. No airspace information, no traffic pattern information.

Hi,

I've spent some time testing that feature and so far I'm really impressed.
Yes, the initial rendering is a little slow, but the result is just perfect. I can't find a single glitch render-side or positioning-side.

Brilliant!

Hi SkyDemon Team,
need some help regarding georeferenced plates. I want to use the plates in the Austrian AIP. For some airports there are such plates marked with the special symbol as I understood. After clicking on that symbol a light gray rectangel will be overlayed to the chart with a white cross on red ground closing symbol but no more. No additional information appears. Are there some setup adaptions necessary?
Thank you for your help!
I am using a Nexus 7 2013 device with WLAN and SIM card, KitKat 4.4.3 and the latest beta of SD.

Kind regards
Herbert

Can you give an example of a specific plate? From memory, those plates are particularly huge/complex and may therefore take a long time to complete rendering on Android.

Dear Tim,
for an example - use this function for Zell/See LOWZ. In the Austrian AIP there is a plate for this airport. In the information box of SD you will find under 'Information' and looking for charts a chart for 'VFR-Flights', marked with this new icon. Tapping on that opens the light gray transparent rectangle on the SD chart but nothing further happens. I interruped the waiting process after about 8 minutes. This behaviour is the same for all other AIP charts too.Hope I could give you an idea!

I can get some Austrian plates in their full glory, e.g. LOAN and LOAV. Others don't seem to be georeferenced, though, e.g. LOWL or LOWG.

When approaching an airfield (e.g. EGSC Cambridge) how is the auto-displayed approach plate chosen when there are several available such as different runways and approach types?

Herbert, it sounds like plate rendering simply isn't working on your device. Unfortunately there isn't an easy way for us to determine what is wrong, though we will add some debugging/reporting functionality to the final version of 3.1 to help us diagnose.
Simon, there are only two georeferenced plates for Cambridge and they're both airfield diagrams. IFR plates are not georeferenced.

If I try to display the georeferenced plate for LOWZ on my PC it takes ages to download and then several minutes to render even on a PC. I think it may be a very complex or faulty PDF file that is taking a VERY long time to render on Android devices. Just tried it on Android (Nexus 7) and can replicate what Herbert is seeing.

I have IFR approach plates enabled and in addition to the above I have available two georeferenced IFR approach plates for Cambridge (ILS/DME/NBD RWY 23 and RNAV(GNSS) RWY 23). This is fantastic having georeferenced IFR plates.  I was just wondering how SkyDemon chooses which plate to auto-display on approach when there is more than one?

Edit: Gloucestershire and Carlisle also have georeferenced IAPs
