Airport management issues involving geospatial technology nclude geodetic control, imagery requirements, data acquisition – GIS schema, regulatory matters, safety and security, financing, leasing management, asset management, legal issues as well as design and infrastructure.

Efforts are underway at many airports to integrate these operations into inter-connected systems that will allow personnel to work with and exchange common data. This efficiency will help to increase the ability to maintain security and to provide emergency related services throughout airports. 

Many travellers will be aware of construction that appears at most airports. Growth is creating this change and planning for these events within existing operations can become difficult to manage with several independent systems operating. Enterprise data management systems integrate airport operations along with construction schedules and help to provide to provide management options with the least interference. 

Even the movement of people within these facilities can be assessed and managed at the design stage relative to the infrastructure pathways. Emergency exits for example are key considerations for airports that often experience large numbers of people throughout the day. Meanwhile, visualizations based upon the same information can be used for communicating about the airport both within the airport and to the wider community surrounding an airport. Height measurments can be calculated and obstructions near airports can be easily determined through the use of geospatial tools.
