Using the Ascend obstacle management service, you can create your obstacles either based on on-sight observations, or by viewing the obstacle identification layers (described under obstacle identification). Follow the steps below.
Select the type of obstacle
Obstacle types match AIXM types and formats. You can manage the types in the service.
Create the obstacles
You do so by drawing a polygon around the obstacle. It is easy, go to the service to try it out.
AIXM 5.1 format
Export the data in AIXM format, and deliver the data to your local AIM office.
Registration of obstacles
As you create your obstacles, you are asked to enter metadata and lifetime for the obstacles. This allows you to export the data in compliant formats. Ascend can perform the registration of obstacles.
As you create the obstacles, you can view the position related to the obstacle limitation surface, as well as the height of the penetration and clearance to the surfaces above.
