Quad City International Airport
Airport Geographic Information System
Crawford, Murphy & Tilly (CMT) has been assisting Quad City International Airport in building a GIS-centric asset management platform. We have overseen data collection processes and data standards compliance, and trained airport staff to use the proper software and techniques for usage and ongoing accurate development.
The GIS effort began well before the FAA adopted its AGIS (Airport Geographic Information System) standard for data collection. Initial focus was driven by a need to create a comprehensive utility database for use by the airport and future contractors. Once the FAA GIS initiative went into effect, CMT helped the airport with securing the necessary funding to develop a much broader AGIS system to meet the FAA standards.
Content implemented to date includes a robust utility data dataset built upon a large repository of record drawings calibrated against aerial mapping and GPS field survey. Data attribution includes sizes, materials, elevations and construction dates.
In addition to utility data the AGIS includes details on pavements, navigational aids, obstruction data, airport structures, land parcels, security data and environmental impacts.
The benefits of the AGIS project extend to the FAA, the airport and all of its suppliers/contractors. CMT provides hosting services for the data via ArcServer website. Maps and data are readily available to whomever is granted access to the database, without having to research old record drawings, countless file drawers, county records, or other documentation.
