Make informed decisions in real time

Managing modern airport operations is increasingly complex. Demand for air travel is growing along with the need to cost-effectively manage infrastructure and increase revenues while protecting the safety and security of passengers and facilities. Esri's ArcGIS platform allows you to integrate information from across your organization and understand activity in real time. Smart maps and spatial analysis help you satisfy regulatory compliance and improve airport management.

System of engagement

Location plays a critical role in all airport and aviation operations as well as airport and aviation management activities. A system of engagement founded on geographic information system (GIS) technology provides the platform to organize your data, making it easy to understand, analyze, and act on.

Analysis in a system of engagement consists of two tracks. The business track determines which tools and data people need. In the technical track, these tools are translated into apps that form the foundation of the system of engagement design.


Next, a systematic road map outlines app deployment. Each app is rated based on the value of the app and the effort required to deploy it. Prioritizing high-value apps that require a low level of effort puts useful tools into users' hands early in the process.


End users stay involved throughout the deployment process. User representatives are part of the team formed for each app. The team uses an agile, or iterative, approach to deployment.

Digital tools

A series of maps, apps, and analytics support your organization's digital transformation.
