Strategies for Spatial Data Maintenance at Airports

Airports utilize spatial data from a variety of internal and external sources. Many airports are embarking on digital transformation initiatives to improve business processes and support investment in infrastructure development, maintenance, and operations. The goals of these initiatives include increasing efficiencies, complying with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reporting requirements, improving safety, and developing preventative maintenance strategies to reduce the overall cost of ownership. For these goals to be realized, airports need strategies to ensure spatial data are current and accurate throughout the life cycle of both systems and infrastructure. The objective of this research is to produce a guide for developing spatial data maintenance strategies at US airports.
