EUROCONTROL Terrain and Obstacle Data (TOD) Manual

This Manual is intended to be used by those bodies involved in the origination, processing and provision of electronic terrain and obstacle data, from the point at which the need for origination is identified, through to the point when the State makes it available in accordance with the requirements of ICAO Annex 15.

This document provides assistance to those tasked with implementing electronic terrain and obstacle data. It seeks to provide the necessary guidance for a range of stakeholders: from those defining the project and undertaking budgetary costing, to those who are responsible for the capture of the data.

It sets out to provide general guidance and to highlight considerations and areas of particular concern that must be borne in mind during implementation.

Terrain and Obstacle Data (TOD) community of interest

This workspace, previously owned by the TOD WG of Eurocontrol,  provides access to all former TOD WG deliverables and its meeting documentation. The workspace is now extended to a larger TOD community of interest (CoI) and is expected to be used for an efficient collaboration between all TOD CoI members.

The objectives of the TOD CoI:

  • facilitate and coordinate eTOD implementation by sharing developments;
  • share, analyse and identify causes of difficulties arising during eTOD implementation in the States;
  • discuss and recommend actions to resolve these difficulties.

Should you have any question or suggestion on functioning of this work space please contact us.

Access to TOD CoI (with a Sharepoint account) can be requested via this link. Access will be provided only to those with proper justification for requesting access.
