10 10 Federal Aviation Administration Airport GIS and Digital Airport NOTAMs May 2007 Airport GIS Services Digital Airport NOTAMs Notice to Airman: TWY S CLOSED BETWEEN P and E xxxxxxxxxxxx

11 11 Federal Aviation Administration Airport GIS and Digital Airport NOTAMs May 2007 AIXM Requirements FAA AIM Group is implementing AIXM throughout our programs Airports GIS currently supports various file formats –Oracle, PostgreSQL/PostGIS, ESRI Shape, AutoCAD DWG, KML Airports GISs development pipeline includes support for AIXM –Planning for this now

12 12 Federal Aviation Administration Airport GIS and Digital Airport NOTAMs May 2007 Approach Planning ahead for future Airports GIS needs with our current mapping capability decisions –Current: Thin Client, Customizable, Visualization –Future: AIXM, Redlining & Annotation, 3D Standards Based –Web Mapping Service (WMS) Standard set of parameterized HTTP requests Extended WMS with Luciad –To satisfy the unique requirements of Airports GIS

13 13 Federal Aviation Administration Airport GIS and Digital Airport NOTAMs May 2007 Findings (1) Luciad WMS: –Provided the OGC standard WMS foundation –Provided access to the LuciadMap core functionality Luciad WMS extensions: –To meet the specific needs of Airports GIS ex. addition of parameters specific to the Airports GIS project workflow framework (project #, etc.)

14 14 Federal Aviation Administration Airport GIS and Digital Airport NOTAMs May 2007 Findings (2) Benefits of Luciads Java based API toolkit –Reusability of code across applications –Near linear horizontal/vertical scaling –High quality image outputs Clear scalability path provides application growth –Luciad WMS: Thin client / Server with WMS (distributed visualization) –LuciadMap / Lucy: Thick client for future functionality (editing, redlining) notes & edits Airports GIS v.1 Airports GIS v.# Custom Java Code with Luciad API

15 15 Federal Aviation Administration Airport GIS and Digital Airport NOTAMs May 2007 Next Steps Initial version of e-ALP built with Luciad WMS will be available Fall 2009 Next version of e-ALP will incorporate additional tools & advanced configuration –Redlining –Editing / Customization –Annotations notes & edits

16 16 Federal Aviation Administration Airport GIS and Digital Airport NOTAMs May 2007 Summary Airports GIS is in the beginning stages of visualization implementation –Received positive results with first prototype Current and future mapping criteria and ability to use AIXM considered in decision to use Luciad WMS

17 17 Federal Aviation Administration Airport GIS and Digital Airport NOTAMs May 2007 Topics From Aeronautical Information Services (AIS) to Aeronautical Information Management –From publications (paper) to data (digital) –Quality management Airport Management –Digital survey standards –Airport Layout Plans and Metadata –Airport ATC operations management Special Activity Airspace

18 18 Federal Aviation Administration Airport GIS and Digital Airport NOTAMs May 2007 SWIM and AIM The FAAs System Wide Information Management (SWIM) Program is providing NextGen infrastructure for data exchange Aeronautical Information systems will need to conform to SWIMs architecture –Exchange of complete information facilitates efficiency in the NAS –Want to create a complete operating picture of the NAS This presentation focuses on editing SUA and ATCAA definitions

19 19 Federal Aviation Administration Airport GIS and Digital Airport NOTAMs May 2007 Goals of AIM in SWIM Context End-to-end SUA and ATCAA digitization –From definition to implementation –NASR will store digitized SUA and ATCAA definition data –SAMS will manage operational status and schedule ERAM will report actual hot/cold status back to SAMS –All exchanges using AIXM Support field requirements –The generated data should be used to create legal definitions –This includes user-friendly definitions that reference geographical borders (geoborders) like rivers, roads, etc. –Allow for communication between FAA and military stakeholders

20 20 Federal Aviation Administration Airport GIS and Digital Airport NOTAMs May 2007 Current Status SUA data is digitized by NACO and stored in NASR –Not truly digital: complex shapes are stored as textual descriptions Cannot compute accurate metrics Cannot display true geospatial representations of shape ATCAA data is not nationalized –Each facility manages its own ATCAAs –Facilities may have conflicting definitions of same ATCAA –ERAM requires a single definition

21 21 Federal Aviation Administration Airport GIS and Digital Airport NOTAMs May 2007 Current Status, contd Demo built on LuciadMap software –Shape generation through CAD editing –Displays any background and standard aeronautical data (ARINC, DAFIF) for visualization Want to support design within context Mockups of website –Need feedback from users about what and how they want to communicate

22 22 Federal Aviation Administration Airport GIS and Digital Airport NOTAMs May 2007 Demonstration of Software

23 23 Federal Aviation Administration Airport GIS and Digital Airport NOTAMs May 2007 Conclusion The FAA has a need for better information management to support decision-making SWIM and AIM are providing the tools Will require change in detail of procedures with few changes to FAA In the end, we get better data and a streamlined process

24 24 Federal Aviation Administration Airport GIS and Digital Airport NOTAMs May 2007 Technological Details

25 25 Federal Aviation Administration Airport GIS and Digital Airport NOTAMs May 2007 Architecture of Demo Data stored in Postgres database Interactions with database done through Apache CXF (FUSE Web Services FrameworK) web services LuciadMap communicates only with web services All data is stored and read as AIXM 5.0 –Using the SAA extensions

26 26 Federal Aviation Administration Airport GIS and Digital Airport NOTAMs May 2007 LuciadMap LuciadMap has proven to be useful as a tool for generating airspace editing capabilities Primary issue with LuciadMap is lack of documentation LuciadMaps AIXM 5 capabilities are strong –By end of development, Luciad had implemented ability to read new AIXM 5 documents using user- provided XSDs
