AFD Live

Custom AFD bundles are now live. Airport Facility Directories can now be generated for any single AFD volume, single state or combination of states in EPUB or PDF formats.

Next up: tight cropping for PDFs to optimize them for on-screen display. This will be an option like the existing 1-up and 2-up options.

Custom Bundles This Weekend

Coming this weekend to chartblob, custom approach plate bundles. Choose your plates by Airport, State or Volume. Choose EPUB or PDF, and then choose how to format them, can do 2 plates per sheet for printing, or 2 plates per sheet optimized for double sided printing.

The PDF is working now, still need some further testing and to add EPUB, but feel free to check it out: Custom Chartblob Approach Plate Generator

EPUB Coming Soon

I've decided to shift from PDF for the Sony reader to EPUB instead. I still have some more testing to do with page numbering. Currently I use a single .xhtml per approach plate, which makes some things a bit slow, but not as slow as a single .xhtml.

The EPUBs are processing now and will be uploaded in a while. The Dec 17 cycle is the last with Sony PDFs.

I've tested these approach plates on the Nook emulator and it appears to work. I won't have a real Nook for a while to do full testing.
