Terrain and obstacle database

Terrain and obstacle database – An electronic database storing details of the significant terrain features and obstacles that could potentially pose a threat to aircraft flight. Some obstructions, especially manmade, may not be in the database, even if it is current. Do not plan a flight based on dependence on the database to keep the aircraft clear of obstacles and obstructions to navigation.
