Tower, This is GIS Requesting a Flyby: Airports GIS & the eALP

Andrew Clem, ENV SP, GISP, CDM Smith

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.

Andrew Clem is a GIS Specialist at CDM Smith. He is a certified Envision Sustainability Professional and a GIS Professional. Mr. Clem typically provides GIS and management consulting solutions for a variety of topics including airports GIS, environmental, business process, disaster recovery, data conversion, and utilities. Lately, he can be found learning all of the cool new features in ArcGIS Pro.
