Airports are inherently spatial. From planning to maintenance to security, airport managers need to know where events are taking place. GIS adds spatial information and 3D modeling to the airport manager's toolkit to support efficient operations.

For example, the ability to use 3D and elevation measurements in the GIS environment helps you visualize the location of flight path obstructions. GIS server technology serves maps and other information, such as noise monitoring results, to the public via the Internet.

Commercial, emergency, and defense-related airfields use GIS to

  • Manage facilities, both air side and land side.
  • Model and monitor noise.
  • Track environmental compliance.
  • Manage construction and maintenance.
  • Plan traffic and capacity.
