Good afternoon,

Can you please clarify if Skydemon is able to correctly draw NOTAM corridors on the map. I recently had a flight crossing two temporary Notam corridors which were drawn on the map as a circle. I had to use a different tool to understand if I was able to cross this corridors and land at my destination (the circle drawn by Skydemon included my destination airfield). However this tool was a ground tool and Skydemon would have been much more helpfull during the flight.

The NOTAMS are/were (Portugal):

Yes, we frequently draw such corridors. If there is ever a corridor NOTAM displayed but as a circle, it may mean that it has not passed our validation filters to be eligible for graphical display. Our filters are quite strict to avoid erroneous depictions. In such a situation, feel free to contact our customer support directly so that we can investigate to see if we can enhance our algorithm.

In the meantime, you can always click/touch on the coordinates in the SkyDemon NOTAM brief directly, to have the individual coordinates highlighted on the map. This is a great backup tool.

Tim,

Thank you for your answer.
OK, I will make sure to contact customer support the next time (this was a NOTAM very limited in time).
Also, thank you for the coordinates tip.

Best Regards,
Pedro Sousa
