We recently prototyped a feature where the vertical profile part of an instrument approach chart is georeferenced. In this screenshot, SkyDemon has "lit up" the vertical profile in green to indicate you're currently flying the extended centreline, and a yellow-on-black bar is creeping along the box (from right to left) to show your progress through the approach towards the runway threshold.
If you fly instrument approaches, we'd love your feedback. What do you think? It would be a lot of work for us to georeference all vertical parts of all instrument approaches so we'd only do it if people found the feature really useful.
