5 5 Federal Aviation Administration Airports GIS and electronic ALP March 5, 2009 iOE/AAA data Obstruction Evaluation NFDC | NASR/5010 data 5010 data NFPG data Flight Procedures NFDC | NASR iOE/AAA data NFPG data PROBLEM | AIRPORTS DATA STORAGE IS DISPARATE Remote Sensing Ground Surveys Remote Sensing Ground Surveys Remote Sensing Ground Surveys $ ? ? ? Which data is correct?!

6 6 Federal Aviation Administration Airports GIS and electronic ALP March 5, 2009 NextGen requires a more robust, integrated, and accurate data set: AIRPORTS GIS PURPOSE OF AIRPORTS GIS  Conceived to address the airport data problems (up-to -date, accuracy) NFDC | NASR/5010 data NFPG data iOEAAA data Finalize translation tools to allow existing airport data to be stored in new Geographic Information System (GIS) application by SEPT 30, 2007 FLIGHT PLAN TARGET STATUS: COMPLETED https://airports-gis.faa.gov/ A-GIS https://airports-gis.faa.gov/  To design a integrated data sharing tool for airport sponsors, planners, surveyors, and FAA for greater airport planning/design flexibility Remote Sensing Ground Surveys AC150/ ,- 17,-18B  To create a better way of collecting, storing, managing, and sharing airports data airport sponsors and the FAA experience nationwide $

7 7 Federal Aviation Administration Airports GIS and electronic ALP March 5, 2009 GIS AND AIRPORTS GIS (A-GIS) CAD vs. GIS  Data that may come from many different sources is geographically projected to line up together  A robust, “query”-able data set  Widely-accepted format used by numerous agencies  In GIS, data is layered like a stack of transparencies WHAT IS GIS?BENEFITS OF AIRPORTS-GIS?  A single, web-based database system for validated data in support of airport design & construction programs  A GIS planning tool to help airport planners visualize the characteristics of a airport facilities & features (runway length, width, surface type)  A tool to help field personnel address & coordinate airport changes in a timely manner in an integrated environment  Allows metro area and system-wide analysis (RSA analysis)

8 8 Federal Aviation Administration Airports GIS and electronic ALP March 5, 2009 A-GIS PROVIDES DEPTH TO THE AIRPORT DATA TO COMPLEMENT THE BREADTH OF INFO AVAILABLE Element: Runway Attribute: Runway Threshold Runway End: 19R NAVD 88 Elevation: 8.8’ Length: 7,500’ Width: 200’ Degrees-Minutes- Seconds (NAD83 DMS) Lat. 37 deg 37' 37.94" N Long. 122 deg 22' 12.44" W Element: Runway Attribute: Runway Threshold Runway End: 19R NAVD 88 Elevation: 8.8’ Length: 7,500’ Width: 200’ Degrees-Minutes- Seconds (NAD83 DMS) Lat. 37 deg 37' 37.94" N Long. 122 deg 22' 12.44" W Element: NAVAID Attribute: VOR/DME Frequency; Operator: FAA NAVD 88 Elevation: 13’ Lat. 37 deg 37’ ”N Long. 122 deg ”W Element: NAVAID Attribute: VOR/DME Frequency; Operator: FAA NAVD 88 Elevation: 13’ Lat. 37 deg 37’ ”N Long. 122 deg ”W AIP Grant: AIP No Name: Rehabilitate Apron Material: Asphalt Area: 11,243 SY Status: Completion date 10/2009 AIP Grant: AIP No Name: Rehabilitate Apron Material: Asphalt Area: 11,243 SY Status: Completion date 10/2009 AIP Grant: AIP No Name: Rehabilitate Runway Material: Asphalt Status: Completion date 10/2009 AIP Grant: AIP No Name: Rehabilitate Runway Material: Asphalt Status: Completion date 10/2009 WE CAN DO BETTER NOW! RICHER BY PROVIDING A RICHER DATA SET THE RESULT: COMPLETE A COMPLETE PICTURE FOR NEXTGEN PLANNING
