Introduction

OFMX (Open FlightMaps eXchange) is a suite of well-defined data formats to validate and exchange aeronautical data with open flightmaps (OFM).

OFMX uses semantic versioning, the current version is 0.1.0 (unreleased). The official schemas are available on:

http://schema.openflightmaps.org

:warning: Please note: The old designator http://openflightmaps.org/schema is no longer valid! Being in early development, things may change significantly without prior warning.

Basic Concepts

OFMX XML

OFMX XML is an XML dialect to exchange the complete dataset, a decluttered and extended fork of AIXM 4.5 (Aeronautical Information eXchange Model). This is the primary exchange format using the file extension .ofmx.

To understand this rather complex exchange format, you should familiarize yourself with it's building blocks:

The following elements are currently used by OFMX XML:

Data Type Elements
Snapshot Root OFMX-Snapshot
Organisation Feature Org Uni Ser Fqy
Airport Feature Ahp Aha Rwy Rdn Rdd Rdo Rls Fto Fdn Fdd Fdo Fda Fls Ils Tla Tls Ahu Ahs Aga Ful
Airspace Feature Ase Abd Avx Adg Sae
Navigational Aid Feature Dpn Dme Mkr Ndb Tcn Vor
Landing Aid Feature Ils Ilz Igp

Timetable Component Timetable Timesh

Resources

OFMX CSV

For the sake of simplicity, some data subsets can also be exchanged by use of CSV following OFMX standards. These are auxiliary exchange formats using the file extension .csv.
