Outline Files


Outline files are restored.

1. Users of the free ActiveDisplayLite program or the more fully featured Active Display again have direct access to my outline files.

2. Coastlines may also be downloaded from the map below but no auto install procedure will be available. The files will have to be installed manually into your Outline folder.

Outline Files

Outline files are used to create line features on the BaseStation display. Typically outline files are designed to produce coastlines, controlled airspace, danger areas, airfield plans, runway centrelines and military airspace.

Sets of outline files are being created for each country. Each country can be highlighted in ADLite and will show the available outline types for the country (these can vary). Users can select all the files available or choose only those they wish to install.

The list below shows currently available file sets and their data of validity.

For more detailed information see Outline Set Details



High Resolution Coastline sets

The default coastline provided in BaseStation is of low detail but provides a world-wide coastline in a reasonably small data file (the General.out file of approx. 3Mb).

These replacement sets are provided for users who do not need a full world-wide coastline but would prefer a regional coast of a much higher degree of detail. Any number of coastline files can be installed but for most systems it is recommended that a maximum of two should be active at any time.

Coastline data files are large so may not be usable on low end PC's.

Airfield Plans

Civil Airfield Plans

These outlines are high resolution but show paved detail only. They display runway, taxiway and apron edges but not runway/taxiway/apron markings, airfield buildings or structures as these can frequently change.

Note: An alternative set of extremely high detail airfield files are available on the SBS-Resources CD or from the Kinetic Downloads page.

The airfield plans cover the following 142 UK and 13 Irish airfields:
