ArcGIS Aviation Airports leverages ArcGIS to provide the foundation for building smart airports and supporting airport geographic information system (GIS) compliance. Its tools and data model deliver the framework for building and maintaining authoritative datasets of airport infrastructure and integrating these assets with your enterprise GIS.


Aviation Airports allows you to reduce obstruction risk and manage airfield operations while streamlining regulatory reporting. You can manage Electronic Terrain and Obstacle Data (eTOD) and create 3D surfaces for airport obstacle analysis. Aviation Airports also allows you to create and manage signs and markings and compare them with reference data to ensure safe operations. Stakeholders can make better-informed decisions using airport basemaps, 3D visualizations, and operations support content.

What can ArcGIS Aviation Airports do for you?

Provide a safe airport

Guarantee operational safety for the public, employees, and contractors by leveraging GIS for your airport operations and ensuring the airport airspace is free of potentially hazardous obstacles. Rely on accurate analysis to make critical decisions for airfield airspace management activities such as monitoring restricted zones.

Airport GIS compliance

Use out-of-the-box tools to comply with US, international, and other regional/state regulations, including CFR Part 77; Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) 2C, 13A, and 18B; International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Annex 4, 14, and 15; and ICAO EUR-DOC 15. Take advantage of preconfigured data checks developed from FAA 18B, Aerodrome Mapping Database (AMDB), and Electronic Terrain and Obstacle Data (eTOD) specifications.

Maximize your ROI

Grow your organization strategically and sustainably with GIS, an enterprise information system that provides the foundation for the Smart Airports initiative and brings location intelligence to your operations. Communicate decisions, reduce conflicts, and improve customer experience with a common operating picture of your airfield.

Reduce production time through automation

Increase operational efficiency and drive better financial performance by extending the geodatabase to meet your current and future airport business requirements. Reduce production time from weeks to days by automating obstacle surface creation and obstacle analysis, data import/export, and data validation.

Drive informed decision-making

Deliver a framework for building and maintaining airport infrastructure datasets and integrating these assets with your GIS and other business systems for actionable insights and better decision-making. Integration with ArcGIS Enterprise and ArcGIS Online ensures access to correct information.

Enable collaboration with stakeholders

Use a consolidated database to map all critical and noncritical airfield infrastructure assets, including signs and markings. This fosters collaboration between airports and other agencies to analyze proposed construction projects that can impact airport airspace and protected airport surfaces. 

Ensure your operational data is the highest quality


Map airfield infrastructure assets and create obstruction identification surfaces, obstacle charts, and signs/markings to specifications.


Support FAA and international standards such as RTCA, EUROCAE, and ICAO's Electronic Terrain and Obstacle Data requirements.


Efficiently manage obstacle collection and evaluation as well as airfield assets in a comprehensive database.

Analyze and visualize

Visualize your airport assets such as signage and markings and your obstacle analysis results in two and three dimensions.

Share and collaborate

Improve decision-making and engage with stakeholders by leveraging ArcGIS to publish and share web services.
