Spanish Airport Authority Selects Esri Software for Corporate GIS

The Spanish Public Authority for Airports and Aerial Navigation (AENA), headquartered in Madrid, has adopted Esri software (ArcSDE, ArcIMS, ArcGIS, and ArcPad) for the AENA corporate GIS across its enterprise, which will be implemented by the Department of Infrastructure Planning and Information Technology (IT) as part of the agency's Airport Information Management System.

Thematic maps and reports help AENA to determine potential trading areas inside terminals.

This involves a four-year agreement for software training, as well as various professional services.

The result will be a set of GIS applications that support the Airport Information Management System for 47 airports across the whole of Spain.

Applications will include all aspects of airport operations and management, including asset and infrastructure data maintenance with special design assistants, query and analysis, thematic mapping, customized reports, data interoperability with CAD data, and imagery file information. There will also be extensive integration and data interoperability with other AENA IT platforms, including SAP R3 and the ERP system.

Beyond these traditional applications, AENA will implement several on-demand modules to support commercial operations at the trading areas inside terminals, such as best location for advertising depending of passenger routes, retail and concessions management, billing control, and revenue analysis per trading area. Esri GIS-based applications will also support material handling activities around platforms, such as best location for information points and equipment inventory. The GIS will also be used for asset and real estate management of the areas surrounding airports.

All of these initial applications are being developed by SOLUZIONA, an Esri Business Partner in Madrid, in the context of the SIGRA project for AENA.
