Abstract (en)

[origin: EP2367163A1] The method involves determining unsafe relief of a terrain, and determining the position of a high point representing an obstacle overlying the unsafe relief by applying a primary database (10) of the terrain containing the unsafe relief and the obstacle. The main volume defined between a main volume base placed on the unsafe relief and an envelope is added to the unsafe relief for obtaining safe relief for overflying that contains the unsafe relief. An independent claim is also included for a device for preparing a safe database to fly safely at low altitude in an aircraft.
