Description / Abstract:

This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) addresses the information content for the electronic presentation of data linked weather Meteorological (MET) information used in the cockpit. It defines guidelines for the electronic presentation of MET information (including text, graphics, textures, icons, and symbology) to the flight crew.

This ARP is applicable to certified equipment for the electronic display (whether installed or portable) of MET information in the cockpit. This ARP also provides a set of symbols that illustrate the depiction of data linked MET information on flight deck display systems such as Navigation Displays, Multi-function Displays, and Electronic Flight Bags. These recommendations complement standard symbology guidelines for airborne applications already in existence (see reference section for applicable documents).


This ARP provides a set of user-centered design guidelines for the implementation of MET information on electronic displays. It addresses what information is useful and how it should be displayed. This document does not include all the detailed specifications required to generate a MET information display. It addresses the human factors aspects of the electronic display of MET information, but does not address the software, hardware or system integrity/availability issues associated with the certification or operational approval of an electronic display system.

The guidelines, example symbology, graphics and text identified within this document also take into consideration their integration with other non-meteorological information displayed in the cockpit. However, recommendations and guidelines for the actual integration of MET information into multi-function displays are covered in other reference material (see reference list for applicable documents).
