             GUIDANCE MATERIAL FOR THE PROVISION OF ELECTRONIC AIP (EAIP)

                                       (Presented by Paul Bosman)



                                              SUMMARY
                This paper has been prepared in reply to AIS-AIM Study Group action 1/18
                which calls for the development of guidance material for eAIP.

                The ICAO State Letter for the adoption of Amendment 36 to Annex 15
                proposed new ICAO Recommended Practices for the provision and the
                consultation on screen of the AIP (including AMDT and SUP) and AIC.

                In order to support the States to comply with this recommendation, it is
                proposed to develop Guidance Material for eAIP, based on the eAIP
                Specification developed by EUROCONTROL and which is already
                implemented by more than twenty ICAO Contracting States.



1.       FROM PAPER TO ELECTRONIC DOCUMENTS

1.1           The second phase of the ICAO AIS to AIM Transition Roadmap includes the provision
by the State AIS of an Electronic AIP (eAIP). This is included as a Recommended Practice in the
proposed ICAO Annex 15, Amendment 36. The text of the ICAO State letter that refers is provided
below:

         . ..

         4.6 Electronic AIP (eAIP)

         4.6.1 Recommendation.— The AIP, AIP Amendment, AIP Supplement and AIC
         should also be published in a format that allows for displaying on a computer screen
         and printing on paper.

         Note 1.— This composite electronic document is named “Electronic AIP” (eAIP)
         and is based on a format that allows for digital data exchange.

         Note 2.— Guidance material for the production and provision of the eAIP is
         contained in Doc 8126.

         4.6.2 When provided, the information content of the eAIP and the structure of
         chapters, sections and sub-sections shall follow the content and structure of the paper
         AIP. The eAIP shall include files that allow for printing a paper AIP.

         4.6.3 Recommendation.— When provided, the eAIP should be available on a
         physical distribution media (CD, DVD, etc.) and online on the Internet.

         Note.— Guidance material on the use of the Internet is contained in Guidelines on
         the Use of the Public Internet for Aeronautical Applications (Doc 9855).. . .


2.     THE EAIP SPECIFICATION

2.1             The Electronic AIP (eAIP) Specification that is proposed to be used as ICAO Guidance
Material was developed by EUROCONTROL and first published in 2003. This eAIP Specification has
since been implemented by many ICAO Member States (see www.eurocontro.int/eaip for the latest list of
known implementations).

2.2             The eAIP Specification provides a standardised approach for:

                a) publishing the content of an AIP (including AIP Amendments (AMDT), AIP
                   Supplements (SUP) and Aeronautical Information Circulars (AIC)) in a structured
                   electronic format (XML and HTML, with PDF for printing); and
                b) visualising the content of an eAIP on a computer screen, using Web technology.

2.3              The eAIP Specification is fully compliant with the ICAO requirements for AIP content
and structure, as laid down in Annex 15.

2.4             The eAIP Specification has undergone comprehensive testing and validation. Following a
number of initial (“pilot”) implementations in Belgium, Slovenia, The Netherlands, Armenia, Moldova
and Germany (military AIP), currently there are more than 20 States (see below) publishing (or soon will
publish) an official eAIP using the EUROCONTROL specification. The contribution of these States to
the development and validation of the eAIP Specification is hereby acknowledged.
                                                  -3-                          AIS-AIMSG/2-SN No. 11


         Implemented: Slovenia, Belgium and Luxembourg, Armenia, Moldova, The Netherlands,
          Slovak Republic, Portugal, Latvia, Azerbaijan, Taipei FIR, Hungary, Japan.

         In development: Czech Republic, Sweden, Egypt, Canada, New Zealand, United Kingdom,
          Switzerland, Ghana, Estonia, Vietnam, Turkey, Albania, Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina.

2.5             The industry that provides tools for AIS automation has also demonstrated a good
adoption of the eAIP Specification. Tools for the production and publication of electronic AIP using the
EUROCONTROL specification are available from at least six software providers (see
http://www.eurocontrol.int/aim/public/related_links/eaip_related_links.html).


3.        PROPOSED ICAO EAIP GUIDANCE MATERIAL

3.1              The proposed Guidance Material for eAIP is included in the Annex to this Study Note.


4.        RECOMMENDATIONS

                 a) it is proposed to insert a new Chapter 11 in the ICAO DOC 8126 - AIS Manual,
                    providing guidelines for the production and the publication of the eAIP, containing
                    the text from the Annex of this Study Note.

                 b) it is proposed to complement these guidelines by the addition of a CD-ROM attached
                    to the AIS Manual containg: eAIP Document Type Definition (DTD), the eAIP
                    Sample and the Toolboxes that contain open source software which can support the
                    production of an eAIP. The content of the CD-ROM will be provided by Eurocontrol
                    as soon as the development of version 1.2 of the eAIP Toolbox will be finalised. This
                    is expected to be by July 2010.

                 c) take note that Eurocontrol will continue to actively maintain the eAIP Toolbox for
                    the benefit of the international community. Further updates will be provided through
                    the Eurocontrol Web site.

                 d) take note that Eurocontrol will launch a formal consultation process on the eAIP
                    Specification in 2010 in parallel with a eAIP Usability Study. These are likely to
                    result in proposed improvements of the eAIP Specification. These will be provided to
                    ICAO by end 2010, as a proposal for updating the eAIP Guidance Material.

AIS-AIMSG/2-SN No. 11                               -4-


                                                ANNEX
It is proposed that the following guidance material is included in the ICAO AIS Manual in order to
support States in developing and providing the eAIP.


1.      INTRODUCTION

1.1             These eAIP production guidelines enable publishing the content of an AIP (including AIP
Amendments (AMDT), AIP Supplements (SUP) and Aeronautical Information Circulars (AIC)) in a
structured electronic format, which is optimised for visualising on a computer screen, using Web
technology.

1.2             When compared with the paper AIP, the eAIP introduces new capabilities, such as fast
search, hyperlinks, dynamic presentation of the changes in text and graphics, etc. The eAIP also complies
with the constraints of the electronic displays, typically related to the page layout and the encoding
format.

1.3             The eAIP brings a number of advantages for the users as compared to the paper AIP:

                e) ease of browsing, facilitated by the HTML technology (hot links, tool tips, etc.);

                f) the ability to visualise changes (both in text and graphics);
                g) no maintenance effort (no time spent on page replacement at every amendment);
                h) easily accessible - it can be made available to the whole group of users (no need to go
                   to the library);
                i)   may be easily archived;
                j)   proven authenticity of the document (if digitally signed by the issuing AIS);
                k) no postal delays (if distributed through the Internet).

1.4             The eAIP also brings advantages for the AIS:

                a) improved AIP product, with increased consistency, integrity and usability, and the
                   possibility of producing derived products, such as Visual Flight Rules (VFR)
                   Manuals, etc;

                b) content for screen (HTML) and paper (PDF) produced from the same source;

                c) may be easily archived and retrieved for each Aeronautical Information Regulation
                   and Control (AIRAC) cycle, using electronic media;

                d) ability to guarantee the integrity and authenticity of the document by digital
                   signatures;

                e) the majority of users do not need to subscribe to paper amendments, thus reducing
                   costs;
                                                   -5-                          AIS-AIMSG/2-SN No. 11


                f) reduced cost for internal copies. In many States, the copies of the AIP distributed
                   internally in the national administration account for almost half of those produced
                   and distributed; and

                g) easier to create integrated/regional AIPs.


2.      EAIP PRODUCTION PROCESS

2.1             An eAIP is produced using aeronautical information stored in a database. The data is
extracted and formatted using dedicated eAIP Editing software. Such tools are provided by industry.

2.2            A „toolbox‟ that supports the development of eAIP production software is included on the
CD-ROM attached to this Manual. This toolbox has been developed by Eurocontrol and it is available
under an open source license.

2.3              Figure 1 details the default eAIP production process from production using the Extensible
Markup Language (XML) to rendition in Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) and/or publication of an
AIP in a print-ready format such as Portable Document Format (PDF). Technologies used in this process
are shown as well.




                                Figure 1 – Default eAIP Production Process

2.4             The advantage of this process is that the both the browsing format and the printing format
are generated from the same XML files, which can be made available to the user.

2.5              Alternatively, it is possible that XML files and the files for printing are produced from
different sources (See Figure 2).
AIS-AIMSG/2-SN No. 11                              -6-




                              Figure 2 – Alternative eAIP Production Process

2.6              The advantage of such an alternate process is that the generation of the PDF files is more
straightforward. On the other hand, the XML export process is usually embedded in the software tool and
the AIP editors do not have much control over it. Therefore, the editors must ensure at every issue that
there are no discrepancies between the XML/HTML content on one side and the PDF content on the other
side. The users do not have access to the original source files which were used to produce the XML and
PDF format. Rendition for printing using stylesheets, etc., is outside the scope of this document.


3.      EAIP LAYOUT AND FUNCTIONALITY

3.1             This section contains detailed requirements for the presentation of the eAIP content on
screen and of the possibilities offered to the user to interact with the electronic document using a Web
browser.

3.2               The eAIP is fully compliant with the Annex 15 requirements for the content and structure
(parts, sections, sub-sections, etc.) of the AIP.

A.1     eAIP VISUALISATION REQUIREMENTS

Note: This sections presents the requirements for the visualisation and functionality of the AIP in
electronic form (eAIP). The requirements adhere to the ICAO Annex 15 requirements for:

a)      The structure and layout of the AIP;

b)      The AIRAC cycle requirements;

c)      The indication of amendments (alterations, additions and deletions) to the AIP in the last AIRAC
        cycle.
                                                   -7-                           AIS-AIMSG/2-SN No. 11


To help understanding this specification, a sample Donlon eAIP is provided on the CD-ROM attached to
the AIS Manual.
