Aviation Charting Service (ACS)

Aviation Charting Service (ACS) includes a set of tools and code designed for application developers to add an aeronautical chart display—based on ARINC 424 data—to their application.  The service provides support for iOS and web implementations, and works offline when on an iOS device with no internet connection required.

The toolset renders ARINC 424 data as vector elements from an SQLite database, minimizing the footprint of the data and decreasing load times. ACS also supports raster tiles for the display of cultural, terrain, or weather data.

As part of the ACS service, customers can choose to subscribe to the converted ARINC 424 data from Eagle Cap Software, or use their existing subscription and Eagle Cap’s data converter.
