:: Notam Map :: Launch ::

The application is launched using Java Web Start. This is a mechanism by which a Java application can be downloaded, installed and run seamlessly from a couple of mouse clicks on a web browser.

It should be possible to run it on any platform that supports the Java environment but does require a version 1.6.0 or later of the JRE (Java Runtime Environment). If a suitable version is not already installed on your then you can download the latest from

With the Java Runtime Environment installed you can click on the icon below to download and run Notam Map:

Launch Notam Map

Once the program is installed on the desk top it can be run offline although it will attempt to connect back to the host to see if a later version of the software is available. If it can connect and there is a new version then this will be downloaded, installed and run instead.

:: Trouble Shooting ::

If the application does not launch as expected then the most likely reason is that your browser is not recognising the launch file for what it is and this might require a bit of manual intervention. Whatever browser you are using the important thing is to ensure that it recognises that files ending in .jnlp and returning a MIME type of x-java-jnlp-file are associated with the Java Web Start program javaws. This can usually be found in the bin directory of the Java Runtime installation.
