Flight Waypoint visualization of the aircraft is the system which in order to be solved is used the threat against a low altitude task and terrain altitude widely. But, in order to compose a system with GPS about lower, it is widely used with the restriction must construct terrain information where it is huge to it is difficult. In this paper, flight Waypoint and economically visualization Moving Map systems of the Open-Source based for it proposes. First, UDP it leads first from X-Plane and synthetic flight path information, it acquires demonstration and terrain altitude information from the delivery receiving Google Earth. Moving from map systems terrain altitude of altitude and the present location of the aircraft about under mapping from map sever it leads and Waypoint visualization at map information which it brings. Also, altitude comparison of the terrain altitude which it follows in time interval and the aircraft it leads and indicates the terrain location which has the dangerous characteristic of collision at the projected course the monitoring screen which it provides. The outgrowth of this paper in objective of the flight algorithm research back and the flight visualization field could be used flight Waypoint visualization with the economic tool.
