Today's Jeppesen approach charts depict a plan view approach chart that includes approach procedure, terrain, obstacle, and airport information. The vertical profile of the procedure is replicated in a chart underneath. TO integrate plan view and vertical chart elements, a 3D display format was realized. It combines all geometric chart elements into a Synthetic Vision System. It depicts 3D tunnel in the sky, terrain, obstacles, and airport information. Color coding is identical to Jeppesen charts. Symbology is extruded from 2D chart symbology. This approach might be excellent for pilots acquainted to the conventional charts.
