Redlands, CaliforniaThe Esri Aeronautical Solution—Airports GIS Package is now available as a free download for Esri Aeronautical Solution users. This software configuration suite was specifically developed to help US airports comply with the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) Airports GIS data management and submission requirements.
Published by FAA in 2009, Advisory Circular 150/5300-18B established a comprehensive digital data standard. As part of the standard, Airports GIS requires US airports to submit accurate and high-quality GIS data that will be subjected to quality checks. US airports face challenges in submitting data that complies with these new mandates without the need for reworking. The Esri Aeronautical Solution—Airports GIS Package provides airports and the consultant community with an integrated toolkit of automated GIS functionality. The solution includes preconfigured products that make the collection, management, quality control, and submission of airport data more efficient, resulting in time and cost savings.
As the Airports GIS program continues to mature, Esri plans to expand and update Aeronautical Solution support for this initiative with new tools and templates, which will also be available via download at the ArcGIS Resource Center.
