Obstacle Management

View limitation surfaces

In the service you can view all limitation surfaces related to your airport. The map is live and you can zoom in to view underlying locations.

Request for new constructions or cranes

You are able to measure any surface at any point, and read out the surface elevation at that point. This is a fast and easy solution to answer requests for new constructions or cranes.

Investigate a point of interest

By clicking on a specific point or entering the geographic position, you can investigate the elevation of surfaces above the point, as shown in the image below.

Service (SaaS) data logging

All data in the ascend service is sourced as AIXM from Euro Control or from airport users using the service, then stored in an internal JSON data structure that again can be converted to AIXM or GML which is ISO 19136:2007 Compliant for the transport and storage of geographic information. Changes to data elements, in all our modules: Wildlife Monitoring, Obstacle Management and Limitation Surfaces, are also tracked and stored with purpose of audit logging and data integrity.

Create your obstacles

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.

View penetrations

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.
