FalconView is a mission-planning, mapping application for the PC, which displays various types of maps and geo-referenced overlays.
It supports the display of aeronautical charts, satellite images and elevation maps. FalconView also supports a large number of overlay types that can be displayed over any map background. The current overlay set is targeted toward military mission planning users and is oriented towards aviators and aviation support personnel.
This application supports various types of overlays on top of the base map.These overlays can be of two types: static or file. Static overlays are single-instance overlays. This means there can only be one of them, and it is either on (opened) or off (closed). File overlays are multiple-instance overlays. This means there can be any number of them, and each one is stored in a separate file.
