Airports Geographic Information System (Airports GIS)

The Airports Surveying Geographic Information System (Airports GIS) helps the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) collect airport and aeronautical data to meet the demands of the Next Generation National Airspace System.

Guided by Advisory Circulars, the airport sponsor or proponents are key links in the information chain. Use this Airports GIS web application to access airport data and submit changes matching defined business rules. After you submit changes, the Airports GIS application notifies the proper FAA office.

We are developing electronic Airport Obstruction Charts and electronic Airport Layout Plans. Our ultimate goal is to integrate multiple versions of the airport data: preliminary, current, planned, and temporary. Additional plans are to share data with other FAA systems such as iOEAAA and eNASR. Stay tuned for future implementations.

Please send digital imagery and associated supporting documentation for review to the following address:
