Air Operations Map
The Air Operations Map provides air operations with enough detail to aid in locating key features on an incident. A secondary Air Operations map, the Pilot Map, may be created for pilots.
Air Operations Branch, pilots
- Standard Incident Command System (ICS) symbology.
- Minimal clutter on map.
- A table that includes the latitude and longitude coordinates in Degrees, Decimal Minutes for point features.
- Pilot map is typically small for easy lap reading in the aircraft.
All map products produced should include the STANDL-SGD cartographic elements. Scale bar must be in nautical miles rather than statute miles.
- Incident perimeter, ICS line and limited/relevant point features.
- Division and Branch breaks and labels.
- Airports, helibases.
- Aviation hazards (e.g., transmission lines, mountain peaks with elevation labels, towers).
- Table or labels showing latitude and longitude of key locations.
- Key landmarks.
- Hydrography (e.g., rivers, lakes).
- Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs) (when in place) and TFR number, height, and frequency, if available.
- Elevation shaded relief or Federal Aviation Administration sectionals.
- Other SITL-requested data.
These are examples from actual incidents and may include non-standard SITL requests for base data, labels, etc.
