Strategy for Spatial Data Maintenance at Airports

Airports receive location-based data from contractors and consultants related to a wide variety of airport projects. Many airports are embarking on digital transformation initiatives to improve business processes and support investment in maintenance and operation applications. The goals of these initiatives include increasing efficiencies, complying with FAA reporting requirements, improving safety, and developing preventive maintenance strategies to reduce the overall cost of ownership. For these goals to be realized, airports need an approach to manage spatial information throughout its life cycle to ensure the data are current and updated as new structures and infrastructure are commissioned. The objective of this research is to produce a guide to assist airports in developing a geospatial data maintenance strategy.
