Esri helps airports comply with FAA regulations

Redlands, US: Esri offered Aeronautical Solution—Airports GIS Package license under special introductory bundled pricing. The company aims to help US airports, comply with the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Airports GIS data management and submission requirements.
In 2009, the FAA published Advisory Circular 150/5300-18B, detailing a regulation that establishes a comprehensive digital data standard for US airports. As part of the standard, US airports are required to submit accurate, high-quality GIS data that will be subjected to quality checks. 
According to the company’s press statement, the Package will provide airports and the consultant community with an integrated toolkit of automated GIS functionality. The solution includes preconfigured workflows, data validation rules, cartographic layouts and editing templates. It will make the collection, management, quality control and submission of airport data more efficient, resulting in time and cost savings.
Until the end of 2011, Esri was offering the license at bundled pricing of USD 10,000 to US airports and consultants doing work under the FAA’s Airports GIS programme.
