Robert Gallmayer, CEO Rogers Data GmbH. “Rogers Data aeronautical charts are optimized to be easily and smoothly integrated into pilots’ information management processes.”
The basic information for the Rogers Data aeronautical charts is obtained from the AIPs (aeronautical information publication) of the national states and, depending on the country, supplemented by our own research. After thorough examination and implementation of adjustments to the data, a uniform chart format is created step by step. During production, special emphasis is placed on the topographic background map with shading and relief, which gives a dynamic 3D impression. In addition to these work steps, the concept of a consistent map image and uniform chart layout is kept in focus.
