Terrain Spot Heights
When can we expect to see Terrain Spot heights on the charts please? Until this is done I can't see how Ev4 can be safely used in-flight.
Some of the Terrain heights shown pictorally in Vertical profile I believe currently do not seem to be shown as the correct height (too low)for some of the terrain in Wales/Scotland.
Is it proposed to have a warning flag in case a route is planned at too low a safety height for the terrain?...Maybe this already exists but I have not found it?
Spot elevations can be upvoted at https://easyvfr4.aero/community/campfire/spot-elevations-on-the-map/#post-17
AFIK the terraindata is pretty accurate, its the SRTM data from NASA. EasyVFR does not provide warnings for a too low planned flight, but it will always default a leg's planned altitude to Highest Terrain during the leg +1000ft. However, if a user lowers this, then no warning is provided.
See attached route shown. I fly this route quite regularly and it goes directly over the top of the highest peak in Wales ..Mt Snowdon which is 3560ft. Ev4 seems to be suggesting I fly it at 3300ft in which case I would die!
Needs to be flown at 4600ft.
As I said previously the Terrain heights in Ev4 I believeare not being shown correctly (too low)in VP profile.
Alan, can you email me the flightplan xml? I will do some investigations then.
xml file of route sent by email. Hope I have done it correctly .Let me know if not!
PS this a duplicate post that I posted earlier that seems to have disappeared into the ether!
