Hi all,

I was hoping someone could give me some insight into what kind of role GIS could play in an airport or for an airline? I'm interested in aviation and currently work in GIS and am seeing what options could be out there.

Thanks!

Hi Dave,
My only exposure to this has been producing navigation charts, I'd guess most of this work is farmed out to sub-contractors like Navtech here in the UK, see: http://www.cartograp...p?contentID=728

I seem to recall hearing about DFW using GIS either during their renovation a few years ago (and possibly currently using to maintain facilities). You may want to make contact with some of the larger airports to investigate.

Here you go! Just found this :)

I know that San Jose International here in the Bay Area uses GIS extensively for facilities and infrastructure management. There are also companies whose entire business is to design and layout runways. Most probably use CAD or similar but there may be some use of GIS there as well.

I work in the aviation industry and GIS is pretty much in demand, there is some new regulation that will almost certainly require GIS expertise.
