Abstract : A method for planning paths through a digital map is presented. The task consists of planning 3-dimensional paths for autonomous air vehicles over a terrain represented by a digital map with different strategies and constraints. Possible strategies minimize time, danger, or fuel consumption. Constraints are lateral and vertical maximum accelerations as well as time and fuel constraints.
