Aviation - Airport Operations

Location: Leeuwen Room I

Implementation of AMDB at Avinor. From GAP Analysis to Pilot Project

Presenter: Knut Sindre Vale - Avinor

  • An AMDB is a spatial database of an airport, with certain requirements. With the help of Geodata (ESRI distributor in Norway), Avinor wanted to see if our data were compliant with an AMDB or not. We found some considerable gaps both with the data model and with the data management. We have therefore decided to do a pilot project on two airports. This includes setting up a data model, preparing data extraction, field surveying, and import and control of the data after the surveying.

Winter Operations Planning at Madrid Barajas Airport

  • Thousands of people are travelling through Amsterdam Airport Schiphol every day. Not finding your way through an airport is a common frustration for travellers. In an endeavour to solve this problem, Schiphol has launched an update to their existing Schiphol Airport App with indoor wayfinding. The dynamic environment of Schiphol and the complexity of their source data and business processes both turned out to be a real challenge in producing a simple wayfinding pplication for passengers.

Helsinki Airport Wayfinding Strategy and How to Get There

Presenter: Eero Knuutila - Finavia

  • Helsinki Airport is a leading Asia-Europe transfer hub serving 17M passengers/year. At Helsinki, we have defined a total wayfinding concept covering both physical and digital passenger channels. The basis of the digital wayfinding suite is a shared digital map that is updated by data owners directly. The map is published in all digital channels and provides the basis for personalized guidance and service discovery. In the presentation, we will introduce the suite and our implementation plans.

Naiade integrates schematic information (junctions, topology) and geographical information (signs, signals, …) and uses a national rail standard to exchange data within the sector.

Providing a Single Source of Data

Presenter: Charlotte Muller - Bartlett & West

  • GIS helps support a railroad’s operations. Schematics display a massive amount of existing GIS data in a simplified and very compact format yet readable document. Such documents can be generated dynamically as data in supporting bands change. These automated track charts become a one-stop shop for systems-wide data, allowing railroads to manage updates and view changes immediately.

To remain competitive, organizations must know how to navigate this changing landscape. And these changes present opportunities for growth. RouteSmart Technologies provides the ideal tools for large-scale route optimization in the postal and home delivery markets.

Mauritius - Last Mile Route Optimization

Presenter: Karel Mauric - Austrian Post

  • The Austrian Post is the leading logistics and postal services provider in Austria. The main business activity is the transport and delivery of letters, which usually takes place the next business day. In order to meet this challenge, a complex process chain, supported by sophisticated IT solutions, has been set up. One of these solutions is ‘Mauritius', a client-server based GIS application, supporting the planning and optimization process for approximately 9.000 postal carrier routes.

3 Words for Precise Location in Transportation

Presenter: Tim Williams - what3words

  • Communicating precise location is a vital for the smooth running of transportation systems. what3words is a revolutionary location reference that makes it easy for people to communicate precise location when a street address won’t do. Based on a grid of 57 trillion 3x3 metre squares it assigns a unique 3 word address to each square. This talk describes what3words and customer stories in transport asset management, emergency response, multimodal travel planning and logistics/postal delivery.
