Non-Navigraph SID/STAR xml files

Postby PINTO » Thu Mar 10, 2016 7:26 pm

Hey all,
I found a source of 439 airport procedures.xml a la Navigraph style, but it wasn't created by Navigraph, rather "build=By Pedro Sousa, Wade Chafe, extracted by PROCIO 6a -Ian Mitchell".
There's no copywrite listed other than the project that these files are used in, and that project is GPL2. Would a link to this be okay to share, or no?

Download here:

I would suggest that the word "extracted" is worth investigating.

As far as I can tell, PROCIO was a program that created the proceduresdb file from navdata.

Found a download - PROCIO was an FS9 utility that took a giant proceduresdb.xml file and split it into parts for specific airports. It's freeware, and the files I found would be freeware also (they had created a proceduresdb.xml that could be downloaded along with PROCIO). These SID/STAR's look to be from 2002, so before Navigraph became the only source. It appears that the procedure list I found was generated from this data set.

I'm comfortable with this and sharing the url.

I wrote a bash script for putting the XML files into the FG required locations.

Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash

for file in $(ls *.xml)
do
   # First, rename all the files to the correct convention
   mv "$file" "${file%.xml}.procedures.xml"

   # Then move it to the correct place
   icao=${file%.xml}
   icao1=$(echo $icao | cut -c 1)
   icao2=$(echo $icao | cut -c 2)
   icao3=$(echo $icao | cut -c 3)
   mkdir -p $icao1/$icao2/$icao3
   mv "${icao}.procedures.xml" "$icao1/$icao2/$icao3/${icao}.procedures.xml"
done


I'm still somewhat uncomfortable about whether this is still okay, as just because it is freeware does not make it GPLv2 - you'd need the original copyright holder's permission.
