Generate OIS Obstacle Data (Aviation)

Résumé

Generates a JSON string that is stored in the OBSTACLEJSON field on the input Obstruction Identification Surface (OIS) multipatch feature class that contains the data necessary to depict obstacles to safety of flight within the approach surfaces (in the form of points, lines, or polygons) in the Terrain and Obstacle Profile layout element.

For each runway feature, the tool identifies each of the approach surfaces associated with that runway. For each approach surface, the tool uses the underlying elevation models and input obstacle features to determine the highest elevations and heights of those obstacle features that intersect the approach surfaces extent. The resulting 3D points, representing the highest-point cross section of each affected obstacle, are created and stored in JSON format and saved in the corresponding approach OIS feature.

The following table shows values that are populated in the OBSTACLEJSON output message. They are given per input obstacle feature if the planimetrically intersect any input approach surface multipatch feature.

Utilisation

  • The Input Runway Features parameter must be z-enabled and have projected horizontal and vertical coordinate systems defined. It must include a populated Runway Designator text field, which must be named as one of the following from the ArcGIS Aviation data models:

    • RWYDESG
    • RUNWAYDESIGNATORIDENTIFIER
    • DESIGNATOR_TXT
    Conseil :

    Recommended input features are RunwayCenterline from the Airports data models (18B or 18C) or ADHPSurfaceLine from the AIS data model. For more information, see the respective schemas for attribute properties.

  • The Input Obstacle Features parameter must be z-enabled and have projected horizontal and vertical coordinate systems defined.

    Conseil :

    Recommended input features are VerticalStructurePoint, VerticalStructureLine, and VerticalStructurePolygon from the Airports 18B or 18C data models. For more information, see the respective schemas for the attribute properties.

  • The Input Obstacle Features parameter should include a field to represent the type of obstacle that is used by the tool to populate the "Type_Code" values in the OBSTACLEJSON field results. Null values in this field will be written as Unknown in the output. Permissible field names are any of the following:

    • TYPE_CODE
    • OBSTACLETY
    • OBSTACLETYPECODE
    • ObsType
    • OBJECTTYPECODE
    • OBJECTTYPE

  • The Input Obstacle Features parameter can include the following fields. If present, the values of these fields will contribute to the HACCM and VACCM fields in the output OBSTACLEJSON values:

    • HORIZACC_VAL
    • HORIZACC_UOM
    • VERTACC_VAL
    • VERTACC_UOM

  • The Target OIS Features parameter must be a multipatch feature class, with projected horizontal and vertical coordinate systems defined, contain approach features, and include the following fields:

    • RWYDESG or LANDINGSTRIPDESIGIDENTIFIER or DESIGNATOR_TXT (Populated with a runway designator, for example, '09/27')
    • NAME (Populated with the value 'Approach Surface')
    • OBSTACLEJSON (Populated by the tool)
      Conseil :

      Recommended input features are ObstructionIdSurface_MP from the Airports 18B or 18C data models. The approach features can be generated with one of the tools from the Obstruction Identification Surfaces toolset.

      Remarque :

      The field length must be at least 50,000 characters. A warning appears if the JSON output exceeds the length of the OBSTACLEJSON field.

  • Input Obstacle Feature elevations are specified by the Obstacle Feature Height Type parameter. Use the Absolute Height (ABSOLUTE_HEIGHT in Python) option if the input data includes feature geometry or a numeric attribute field with the elevation value of the top of the obstacle above mean sea level. Use the Relative Height (RELATIVE_HEIGHT in Python) option if feature geometry or a numeric attribute field contains the value of the obstacle height above ground level.

    Obstacle Feature Height Type
  • This tool requires base elevation data to function correctly. That data can come from one or more underlying digital elevation models (DEMs) or from a numeric attribute field in the input obstacle feature class. One or the other must be provided, with the appropriate option specified using the Elevation Source parameter.

  • The tool will use a flight path ID field (PATHID, text, Nullable, or 255) for the Target OIS Features parameter to associate curved approach polylines with specific approach surfaces. This is required if you have an Input Flight Path Features parameter value. Use this value for the Target OIS Features parameter with the OBJECTID field of the corresponding Input Flight Path Features parameter value. This will be populated by the Create Curved Approach tool when creating the curved approach surface or surfaces.

  • If the tool is run repeatedly with different Input Obstacle Features parameter values, it will append the generated JSON data for each set of obstacles to each affected approach surface feature. Subsequently running the tool with an updated version of given Input Obstacle Features values will selectively update the JSON data for those features without affecting the JSON data generated using other Input Obstacle Features values.
