The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations (UN). It serves as a global forum for member states to work together toward the safe, secure, and sustainable development of civil aviation. The Challenge: Visualizing aviation data, such as major air traffic flows, regional air navigation plans, and other regional data is important to ICAO staff in order for them to ensure safe air travel. The Solution: In 2003, the Eleventh Air Navigation Conference (AN-Conf/11) recommended that ICAO develop a database containing all tabular material from ICAO regional air navigation plans together with major traffic flows and other regional data to achieve this goal. The database, along with all associated charts, would be made available through the Web.
