You can add waypoints using our proprietary format or create the waypoints directly on the map.





From the main waypoints’ view, there are several actions that may be performed, detailed here.

Creating and Editing#

To start creating a waypoint, click on the create button. You are then presented with the creation panel. When you edit edit_wp a waypoint, you are presented with a similar view.


The parameters indicated with * are mandatory.

You are free to use any waypoint types supported by Air Navigation Pro.

The coordinates may be entered directly using different coordinate systems, internally they are stored as WGS84. You may use the wp_map button to have a map view to position your waypoint.

The default data group is preselected. You may assign others by clicking on the field.

Frequencies and runways#

Frequencies are available for all types. They are described by a type, a value and an optional description. To add a row to the table, click on add_frq.


Runways are not available to all types: they are available for types that support a landing zone. They are not currently supported for user waypoints.

To add a row to the table, click on add_frq.

They are described by an ID, an orientation in degrees, a length and width, and a surface type.



You may assign from this view documents to the waypoint. It is only possible to attach pdf documents.

Icons and tags#

User waypoints are special as they may be decorated with a tag, associated with a color, and their icon replaced by a dedicated one.


There are several icons you may use to represent you user waypoint: there are abstract types and real types. If you need another icon, please get in touch with our support.

We provide several tags by default, associated with specific colors. Feel free to create a new tag by entering text in the input field above the list, as in the example below.


Once you have selected the tag, you may select its color from the selection below.



The colors have defined values as the app currently hard coded their values.


Once the waypoint is defined, you may add it to your waypoints’ database by clicking on create_wp. You will then be redirected to the waypoints’ overview.

See After creation, edition or import for the publication.


You may import several waypoints by clicking on upload_btn. You may then select the file to import.


We currently support 3 import formats: CSV, GPX, and ZWAN.

By default, existing waypoints will not be replaced. Click on the Overwrite checkbox to ensure the items are updated.


All imported waypoints will be assigned to the default data group.


The CSV may be comma separated or tab-separated.

There are mandatory keys:

  • waypoint_id: string: any in “a-zA-Z0-9-_. /,[]!?@*+”

  • waypoint_name: string: any in “a-zA-Z0-9-_. /,[]!?@*+”

  • waypoint_type: currently only user waypoint i.e. 3 is currently supported

  • waypoint_elevation: in ft MSL

There are optional fields:

  • waypoint_country: Full country name in English e.g. Switzerland. If not supplied an attempt will be made to determine it using the coordinates. This is used in the app for filtering.

  • waypoint_tag: A tag name, 100 characters max. The default color is gray. See Icon and tags for details.

  • waypoint_icon: An icon name. Valid values are listed below.

  • waypoint_color: A color for the icon and the tag. Valid colors are listed below. Colors are link to tags, so to color your waypoints, you must set a tag. Mind that the same color must be used consistently for a given tag.

In case there are missing columns, the page will offer you the possibility to map the columns in your file with the expected ones.


Either waypoint_longitude (float ex. 4.3) and waypoint_latitude (float ex. 44.2), or waypoint_coordinate if you’d rather not use decimal lon/lat ex. 23°34,56’N, 145°12’W or ‘53 H324397 5792298’ (UTM)

You may filter the data from the table and from the map: The points in the table are defined by the view in the map. You may as well filter the data in the table by entering some text in the search field.


You may either delete points individually by clicking on the bin button per row, or by selecting multiple waypoints (activate their checkbox), and clicking on delete_many below the table.

After creation, edition or import#

The waypoints are automatically added to the default data group when importing the data from external sources, while it’s added to the data group of your choice when creating/editing. If you need to change the association, you may select the waypoints via their checkbox, and click on assign_dg below the table. You are then presented with the following:



You need to publish a data group to make the waypoints visible in Air Navigation Pro.
