ADDS Text Data Server - AIREP Output Formats

XML Output

  • The aircraft report XML output has an XML schema

  • Aircraft report fields are returned in the same order, indicated by the Aircraft Report Field Description.

  • Element names are in lower-case with words separated by an underscore (_). Whenever applicable, the units are included at the end of the element name. For example, an element name of temperature_c indicates that temperature is in degrees Celsius.

  • Each row of aircraft report data is returned as a separate 'aircraftreport' tag, followed by the aircraft report fields. Any fields that appear to be missing are either not reported in the aircraft report or were not parsed.

  • Aircraft report fields are always returned in the order indicated by the Aircraft Report Field Description Table. The exception to this is when cloud, icing and turbulence conditions are grouped together.

  • The output includes some statistics about the request, such as the number of results and the time taken to fulfill the request.

  • All data is ordered by descending observation time.

  • An error message is generated when an error in the input request prevents the retrieval of data.

  • If a constraint parameter is missing and a default value exists, an appropriate warning message is produced and the default request is fulfilled.

  • For a description of the aircraft report field names, their units and types, please refer to: Aircraft Report Field Description
