As part of its NextGen program, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is using GIS as its standard for collecting and managing aeronautical geospatial data. What has traditionally been known as the Airport Layout Plan (ALP) is becoming the eALP. Through its early Advisory Circulars and pilot testing, GIS support of the FAA’s forward-thinking NextGen plan has created quite a buzz. This 30,000 foot view presentation will cover an overview of NextGen, take a look at some of the characteristics of the eALP, and gain an understanding of how GIS is supporting the entire effort. A brief look at the FAA’s brand new Airports GIS Surface Analysis and Visualization Tool will also be presented.
