What is AccuMap?

AccuMap is a modern, snazzy and intuitive desktop application for viewing live VATSIM data such as pilots and air traffic controllers. AccuMap takes advantage of new features found in the Windows and MacOS operating systems allowing users to have a much nicer experience when searching through the map.

With features such as system notifications, accurate sub-sector hierarchy depiction, live community contribution, and many other features being added with app updates, why use any other VATSIM tracker?

AccuMap v2 in development.

As many of you know, AccuMap is a great program with a lot of potentials, however, it's held back by a massive flaw in the way the map component works, resulting in the application having very poor performance across all operating systems.


As we enter the new year, AccuMap v2 has started development as a web-based application, or web app. Version 2 will provide a 250% performance increase, better memory management, and server-side data processing.

Version 2 will also offer a desktop application for Windows, MacOS, and Linux (Debian) distributions. As a result of this, the current AccuMap desktop application will not receive any updates until we have finished the public beta stage.


We apologize for all inconvenience, we wish you a happy new year, and hope you're excited about AccuMap v2, making AccuMap great again!

If you wish to follow the progress of the development, take a look at our Facebook page, or lurk around on our Discord server.

What does AccuMap include?

Live VATSIM Data

Want to know who's online? AccuMap is the place to go! Showing all pilots and connected ATC across the VATSIM network in a stylish and accurate way.


At AccuMap, we don't discriminate. Our app is available on Windows and MacOS!

Accurate ATC sectors

No more guessing what part of the London FIR LTC_NE_CTR controls! Sub-sectors for en-route ATC across the world are supported and displayed on the map!
Since AccuMap allows for live community contributions, you can submit updates to sectors at any time, and once approved, every user will see the changes instantly!
Just to add the icing onto the cake, AccuMap also supports Approach/Departure sub-sectors with dynamic runway selection!
So no matter if your sector changes when the runways change, AccuMap has you covered!

ATC Sector extensions

AccuMap is the first ever "Who's online" client to be able to accurately depict ATC sector extensions.
When a controller is extending their coverage to another sector, they can simply enter:
into their controller info, letting AccuMap know they are extending!
For example:

Custom System Notifications

AccuMap gives users the ability to setup completely custom system notifications. Want to know if your friend is online? Interested to see if someone is squawking 7700, 7600? Favourite airport has ATC? No problem!

Always Up To Date

No need to share custom data files around! All of AccuMaps FIR boundary, sub-sector, and airport data is stored on our servers for all users to access, meaning everyone will see the same thing at the same time with no extra downloading required!
Not only is the data kept up to date, but the AccuMap application itself automatically updates as bugs fixes and new features are implemented.

Day & Night Colour Modes

Simming in a dark room? Don’t like the bright colours during the night? No problem! AccuMap has day and night time colour modes which can be changed manually or set to change automatically at a certain time, keeping your eyes from burning during late night VATSIM sessions!

And many more to come!
