Project Description: 3D-Aerodromes? (http://www.3d-aerodromes.com/) is a program funded by the European Commission Eurostars Programme and the R&D funds contributed by the three Member States of Germany, Greece and Italy. It was initiated in 2010 and was completed in 2013.3D-Aerodromes? delivers:
(i) the software technology to producing three dimensional Aerodrome Navigational Databases for the General Aviation; a technology for the integration of satellite imagery and other remote sensing data, terrain and obstacle data, navigation data and CAD data of airports; and
(ii) for 50 European airports, databases were created that served as the basis for a standardization of 3D airport and airport environment data. These data provide an important basis for 3D visualization and navigation purposes in the air and on the ground and support the pilot through the so-called Synthetic View on the cockpit instruments. Examples of such 3D airport databases and their use for Synthetic View will be shown at the AERO-2012 in Friedrichshafen (
