The company Austro Control Ges.m.b.H. (ACG) is responsible for the air trafic control of the civil aviation in Austria. The demand for the development of a spatial data infrastructure (SDI) based on the INSPIRE directive led also to a reorganization of the internal processes of ACG. The SDI-ACG consists of the base-component Geodata, and of the components Metadata, Geowebserver, and Geowebportal. The portal is a thin-client solution and integrates many functions that are not available in standard web-browsers including the online-position of all aircraft, the third dimension, and meteorological information.

Die Firma Austro Control Ges.m.b.H. (ACG) ist für die Flugsicherung der zivilen Luftfahrt in Österreich zuständig. Der durch INSPIRE gesetzlich vorgeschriebene Aufbau einer Geodateninfrastruktur (GDI) wurde zum Anlass genommen, auch die internen Geschäftsprozesse zu optimieren. Die für externe und interne Aufgaben entstandene GDI-ACG besteht aus der Basiskomponente Geodaten sowie den Komponenten Metadaten, Geowebserver und Geowebportal. Das Portal ist ein Thin-Client und integriert viele Funktionen, die in den üblichen Geowebportalen nicht enthalten sind. Dazu gehören die Online-Darstellung aller Flugzeugpositionen, die dritte Dimension und meteorologische Informationen.

More about this publication?
  • Photogrammetrie - Fernerkundung - Geoinformation (PFG) is an international scholarly journal covering the progress and application of photogrammetric methods, remote sensing technology and the intricately connected field of geoinformation processing.

    Papers published in PFG highlight new developments and applications of these technologies in practice. The journal hence addresses both researchers and student of these disciplines at academic institutions and universities and the downstream users in both the private sector and public administration.

    PFG places special editorial emphasis on the communication of new methodologies in data acquisition, new approaches to optimized processing and interpretation of all types of data which were acquired by photogrammetric methods, remote sensing, image processing and the computer-aided interpretation of such data in general.

    PFG is the official journal of the German Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing.
