The 30 June 2011 Approach Plate and Airport Facilities Directories are now live on the site.

What's next.

So, apart from the regular updates we've been working behind the scenes to provide access to the FAA raster charts.(Sectional, TAC, WAC, and IFR Enroute) We plan to provide WMS(Web Map Server) access so that various third party software products can use our service to download tiled maps to devices. We've been testing with the Mobile Atlas Creator(MOBAC) with encouraging results. We hope to have this available to the public within the next month or so. Due to the large data sizes and heavy compute requirements this will be a for-pay service with a monthly fee(below $5/mo).

For anyone who writes map display software we'd be happy to discuss access/licensing for your customers.

NOOK Simple Touch Reader

We've updated our system to add the new NOOK Simple Touch Reader as an ePub option. The available height is the same as the older NOOK but we can now use full screen width. So we get a bit more space to put the Approach Plates, AFD and converted books on.

Much like the NOOK Color, you'll need to tap the center of the screen, choose Text and make sure "Publisher Defaults" is checked.

And of course, our FAR and AIM from the B&N Bookstore work fine as well.
