Bring accurate and authoritative maps and data to senior leaders to drive evidence based decision making. 


This webinar will explore how civil aviation authorities are leveraging ArcGIS to exploit their aeronautical data holdings to quickly deploy applications, dashboards, and maps with a configure first approach for projects. 

This approach allows organizations to get value out of the applications and the data that power them.

Aeronautical charts are some of the most complex and difficult cartographic products to produce. Highly demanding chart specifications coupled with a complex aeronautical data model in AIXM requires a data driven approach be adopted to ensure the quality and timely production across a multitude of chart types. 


This webinar will show users how the migration from ArcMap to ArcGIS Pro is providing new opportunities to enhance production methods and boost efficiency. We will even explore a paradigm shift of how ArcGIS can enable CAAs to re-think the traditional AIRAC cycle for data production and dissemination.

Ensuring airspace around the airport is clear and free of obstacles is paramount for the safe of operation of aircraft. Throughout a proposed structure’s lifecycle from a proposal for new construction through the approval by a civil aviation authority, all stakeholders must provide input into the evaluation process with an comprehensive understanding of the impacts of the structure on the navigable airspace. 


This webinar will cover how Civil Aviation Authorities can collect digital data for obstacles from proponents to conducting an analysis of the obstacles against ICAO criteria and fully engage with stakeholders throughout the process using workflow management tools which ensure the traceability throughout the entire evaluation process.

The Symposium agenda is as follows:


Developing a Geospatial Strategy

Airports are increasingly coming to understand that data is one of their most valuable assets for improving their performance. Many airports report that collecting and maintaining high-quality geospatial data is one of their greatest challenges in GIS, not to mention the various airport business processes that rely on this data. This webinar will cover all aspects of developing quality geospatial data for airports—from collection to conversion and quality assurance. The focus will be on not just GIS data but also CAD, building information modeling (BIM), imagery, and other data types.

Manage Complexity

Between growing passenger volumes, a dynamic regulatory environment, maintenance and expansion of aging infrastructure, increased security concerns, and the constant need to grow revenues, the considerations of airport management can be staggering. This is why smart airports are turning to the power of GIS technology. GIS is founded on a location intelligence strategy that leads to better decision-making.

Join Esri and Arora Engineers, an Esri Silver partner, to:

  • Learn how to get started with GIS.
  • Discuss common challenges and lessons learned.
  • Discover resources required for success.

ArcGIS for Aviation is a powerful solution that supports better data management, editing, and validation while reducing chart production time for significant time and cost savings.  - Mete Ercan Pakdil, Assistant Navigation Manager, Pegasus Airlines.
Happy International Civil Aviation Day everyone!
As ICAO celebrates its 75 years of connecting the world, let's look at how Esri supports the Aviation industry with digital chart production that ... yes, you're reading it right... 300% faster!!

Century Boulevard runs as straight as an arrow through a 10-mile stretch of south Los Angeles (LA) before terminating at the horseshoe-shaped Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) terminal complex. Despite seemingly easy access from this major LA thoroughfare and the city’s widespread freeway network, congested vehicular traffic has plagued the airport for many years. 

With 4 million people living in the city and the automobile as the preferred method of transportation, traffic congestion in and around LAX is an accepted nuisance— particularly when considering that it is the world’s fifth-busiest airport for passenger traffic, having served more than 84 million people in 2017. 

Head-over to our Subject Matter Expert blog to know how LAX went from this, to being Re-LAX-ed!

Managing an airport has never been more challenging.


With ArcGIS Indoors, you can bring together information from across your organization to streamline operations. Use smart indoor maps and spatial analysis to elevate your workflows.


Between growing passenger volumes, a dynamic regulatory environment, maintenance and expansion of aging infrastructure, increased security concerns, and the constant need to grow revenue, the considerations of airport management can be staggering. Smart airports are turning to the power of information and a location intelligence strategy to inform decisions.


Facility Management: From daily inspections to tracking facility conditions, get the most out of your assets in the most efficient way possible.


Efficient Operations: With ArcGIS Indoors you will find clarity in complex airport operations, collaborate, and make more informed decisions.


Safety & Security: Integrate disparate technologies into a single common operational view, giving you real-time security intelligence.


Non Aeronautical Revenue: ArcGIS Indoors can provide greater insight regarding the sales performance of concessions businesses that will enable the airport and their partners to ensure that customer demand is satisfied and revenue opportunities are maximized.

Esri announces open enrollment training for ArcGIS for Aviation : Airports and ArcGIS for Aviation : Charting to be held consecutively beginning November 4, 2019 at the Berlin office of Esri Germany. 


ArcGIS for Aviation : Airports, November 4-5, 2019

ArcGIS for Aviation: Airports is a two-day workshop covering topics such as airport GIS data storage and management, ensuring data quality, and obstacle data management and obstacle analysis using ArcGIS Pro.   


ArcGIS for Aviation : Charting, November 6-8, 2019

Immediately following the Airports workshop, Esri will conduct the ArcGIS for Aviation : Charting training. This course is ideally suited for aviation agencies/authorities tasked with aeronautical chart production.  Topics will focus on the AIXM based data model and exchanging data with AIXM, creating aviation data using Feature Builder, symbolization based on business rules, complex labels/annotation, and chart finishing.


Esri Distributors are encouraged to invite interested customers to register for either (or both) the Airports or Charting session.  


Please contact Jonathan Weaver ( for pricing and registration details.

Esri Distributors are also invited to attend, but may have to share a workstation with their customer depending on available space.

As ICAO celebrates its 75th Anniversary of the signing of the Convention on International Civil Aviation, they are inspired by past achievements, making air transport a safe, secure and efficient mode of travel. This motivates ICAO to look towards the future with determination to continue to make aviation an enabler for the creation and preservation of friendship and understanding amongst the peoples of the world. In this regard, they are collectively aware of the increasing pace of innovation throughout the aviation industry and the great potential that it holds.


The broad objective of this fair will be to excite and educate their sector on the possibilities that innovation presents, and to provide insights to key decision makers, on how they can start-up innovation within their own States. One of the aspects of modern innovation, is the relatively low development costs making it truly accessible to all States so that from the beginning of No Country is Left Behind; noting significantly, that leaders in innovation include those from developing and emerging aviation markets.


The ICAO Assembly is the Organization’s sovereign body.  It meets at least once every three years and is convened by ICAO’s governing body, the Council.
ICAO's 193 Member States and a large number of international organizations are invited to the Assembly, which establishes the worldwide policy of the Organization for the upcoming triennium.
Esri ArcGIS for Aviation's Jonathan Weaver and Mark Cygan will be attending the General Assembly.
