Table 1: Examples of the various altitude restriction symbols with the new Jepp SID/STAR format.
Table 2: A side-by-side comparrision of the old and new formatting for both Altitude and Speed Restrictions.
with altitude restrictions, speed restrictions are now color-coded MAGENTA, both in the procedure’s header (title) information and within the chart’s plan view (Table 2 and Figure 3).
  Minimum Sector Altitude (MSA): The MSA now over- lies the chart’s plan view, rather than being depicted in a separate box, off in one corner. The overlying MSA circle is color-coded MAGENTA, as are the bearings separating sectors of the MSA circle and the altitudes depicted within each sector. The center point defining the MSA circle is identified (both at the point itself and on the MSA circle), as is the MSA diameter when it differs from the standard 25 NM. The minimum altitudes are expressed in whole numbers, but rounded up to the next one-hundred-foot increment (Figure 2).
  Navaids: Navaid symbology has been changed to conform with Jepp enroute charts and ICAO standards. These easily recognizable symbols, along with the removal of associated lat/long information, help in Jeppesen’s efforts to declutter the chart. Since modern GPS and FMS databases are generally programmed via a navaid’s two- or three-letter identifier and already have said navaid’s associated latitude/longitude stored, the

information was certainly contributing to clutter that modern IFR pilots seldom (if ever) use in the terminal environment.
  Holding: Published hold depictions which are based on nautical mile distances or DME leg lengths are now depicted to scale, while holds based on flight time will be noted as “NOT TO SCALE.” Maximum holding speeds are noted at the top of the textual information for the hold. Still included (where appropriate) are the minimum and maximum holding altitudes, MHA and MAX, respectively, below the speed depiction. A “by ATC” notation will appear, as appropriate.
  Secondary IFR Airports: Not included in the previous formats, these airports are now depicted in a subtle GREY color, similar to how they appear on Jepp approach plates. In the U.S., when a single SID or STAR procedure serves multiple airports, the “Also Serves” airports are depicted in BLUE.
  Waypoints: The latitude/longitude coordinates associated with depicted waypoint names have also been removed to declutter the chart’s plan view.
  Scale Bar: It only makes good sense that since these redesigned charts are depicted to scale, that a reference to the specific scale being utilized would be added. Along the left or top edge of the chart, depending upon chart orientation, a scale bar provides inch-to-NM scale information.
