1 Airports GIS | UpdatePresented to | Nebraska Aviation Symposium January 2011Robert Bonanni, National Resource, AAS-101Date | Wednesday: January 26, 2011
2 Why Did FAA Create Airports GIS? Improve EfficienciesAirports, FAA, consultantsSingle, authoritative, accessible data sourceReduce Costs to all StakeholdersImprove SafetyIncreased need for real-time data accuracySupport New Initiatives – Next Generation of Air Transportation (NextGen)A repository of airport information (not just survey data)A true paradigm shift in the way we do business… in the right direction

6 Airports GIS | FY09-10 Accomplishments Emphasis on Survey Standards (Advisory Circulars) and Airports GIS website800+ projects in the system (includes LPV/WAAS)Airports GIS Programming (software, website, modules)Completed electronic ALP proof-of-concept (Sept 2009)Transitioned from AIM to ARP (Fall 2010)Deployed -18B schema templates (DWG, DGN, and SHP)Outreach (on-going) and TrainingDeployed web-based training (IDLE), FAQs, and Airports GIS Help DeskACC, ACI, AAAE, FAA conferences and workshopsInitiated: external training (ACC); internal training (6 Regions by end of CY10)Initiated robust data collection/input effortsPhase I – 7 Airports (SW and SO Regions); Phase II – 30 Airports (All Regions)Increasing emphasis on Airports GIS deliverable for all projectsAIP Grant/PFC requirement to incorporate on virtually all projectsObstruction surveys, construction projects, noise contours, land acquisition“Tiger Team” deployed to reduce data verification delaysIssued Working Draft Guidance (see National Planning Website)Strategic Plan created and in review (includes preliminary BCA results)Transition Policy in review (target for implementation in Jan)
7 Airports GIS | FY2011 Priorities Implement Transition Policy and finalize Strategic PlanBusiness Case (and tie-in with other LOBs)Data CollectionComplete Phase I pilot program; marked progress on Phase IIFund additional robust data collection projects at high priority locationsAddress Growing Pains >>> see next slideStreamline data verification process (review: plans; control; imagery; data)Improve website software and project flow (project/partial vs. airport-centric)Complete deployable eALP module precursors (programming; beta-testing)Incorporate lessons learned from pilot projects into Advisory Circulars (for updating in FY2012) and programmingOutreach and Training (on-going)Integrated Distance Learning Environment (IDLE)Continue additional internal/external workshops and outreach effortsExplanation of ROIs to airport community (from FAA field personnel)Begin planning for resident training course at FAA Academy
9 Airports GIS Transition Policy | Premise Airports GIS ACs were applied too broadly too quicklyEstimated 4,000 projects per year (staff is already very busy)One size of requirement does not fit all project typesIndustry and FAA have a steep learning curveAirports GIS system and processes not ready to handle demandACs have kinks that need to be worked outTransitioning is the key to realizing program (and NextGen) benefitsProgram requirements need to be transitioned in practicallyPhased in to airports by size and relevance to NASEnforce compliance as appropriate by projectImprove awareness, education and support
10 Transition Policy | Proposed Next Steps Initiate/enforce requirements when there is a “triggering event”Any change to safety critical data, such as:New or lengthened runwayInstrument procedure designMaster Plan / eALP updateThen phase in (by relevance to NAS)Large/Medium Hubs: Now (FY10-11)Small/Non Hubs: 1 year (FY12)Top Non Primary: 2 years (FY13)Middle Tier GA: 3 Years (FY14)Lower Tier GA: 4 Years (FY15)Meanwhile, encourage the use of CADD standards identified in -18draft Transition Policy | 2½ pages67 comments from the field!11 comments from APP-1/AAS-1

14 Lessons Learned / Using Airports GIS | DFW DFW: LIVE Parking StatusDFW: Flight Track Analysis
15 Airports GIS | Business Case Analysis (BCA) The FAA Office of Airports is preparing a Business Case Analysis for Airports GIS.Data and conclusions from the Business Case Analysis will be used to further guide the development and implementation processes of Airports GIS based on a review of the eALP Pilot Program and general lessons learned.We also want to better understand the full potential use of the data collected as part of the Airports GIS program, including internal and external FAA uses, and data that will be used in support of NextGen. For example, the Business Case Analysis will be used to provide financial data for the FAA’s Investment Analysis of its Aeronautical Information Management (AIM).AIM is the FAA source for collecting, validating, storing, maintaining, and disseminating aeronautical data concerning the United States and its territories to support real-time aviation activities.15
16 Airports GIS | Business Case Analysis | NextGen Airport GIS provides accurate and up-to-date maps of airport facilities and equipment that is essential to NextGen systems and capabilities. As a result, Airports GIS is a key enabler for NextGen implementation.FAA office of Airports (ARP) is supporting the development of such a NextGen capability through the collection, formatting, and uploading of airport and aeronautical data as specified in the Airport Surveying-GIS Program.Because Airports GIS is part of NextGen, the Benefit Case Analysis must follow the general guidelines of the FAA Acquisition Management Policy (AMP) and Financial Investment Process. The BCA is being prepared in parallel to the Investment Analysis being conducted for AIM.16
17 Airports GIS | Business Case Analysis | Capabilities Key system capabilities/data to be assed in the BCA:Improved Collaboration: Immediately share comments and questions with FAA, airport, and consultant stakeholders for more efficient and effective resolution.Thorough Analysis: Measure heights, distances, and clearances of runways, taxiways, obstacles and other features in comparison with design standards.Access to Multiple Sources of Information: Gain one-stop access to a variety of airport mapping, operations, financial, and other data sources.Better Decisions: interpret information and make decisions (e.g. flight procedure minimums, protected critical areas, modifications to standards, and other safety determinations) faster and with greater confidence because data is consistently presented, current, comprehensive, and assured to be the required quality.
18 Airports GIS | How will GIS help us do our job better and how often will we use Airports GIS data? Airports GIS will provide data to support airport construction, land-use planning, environmental compliance, categorical exclusions, recording of NAVAID records, 3-D visualization, and integration into other GIS efforts.Think about how we currently refer to geospatial data/maps related to:Grant Review and ApprovalProject Eligibility RequirementsCompatible Land UseMaster Plans/ALPObstruction Evaluation (OE) Database/Airspace DeterminationRunway Safety Area DeterminationEnvironmental/NEPADesign ReviewConformity to Plans and Specifications (As-Builts)Safety and Construction PhasingCompliance/Grant ObligationsLand Acquisition18
