Training - Ab Initio Cartography

The aim of the training course is to familiarize novice cartographers with the relevant standards and recommended practices as defined in ICAO Annex 4 and the ICAO Chart Manual Doc 8697, as well as its application in a Bentley MicroStation Computer Aided Design environment.

The course has been designed as a custom course, allowing for some flexibility to enable the trainer to respond to the student’s experience level and specific questions and issues that student’s may bring forward.

We offer a complete aeronautical charting training program.
The training can be provided at our location in the Netherlands or at your location.
