The mission of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is to provide the safest and most efficient aerospace system in the world. The FAA Airports Surveying Geographic Information System (AGIS) program helps to collect airport and aeronautical data to meet the demands of the Next Generation National Airspace System. NextGen—as it is known for short—will transform the air traffic control system from a ground-based system to a satellite based (GPS) system.
To support the FAA AGIS 18b survey requirements, we provide aerial and terrestrial surveying control and locations, as well as digital geographic information mapping. This demands a high level of expertise from us, as considerations have to be made concerning primary and secondary control, accuracy requirements, field survey, layer and feature class definitions, heights, distances, metadata, airfield surfaces, runway ends, navigational aides, obstruction identification and airspace analysis. To ensure we can meet the demands of these clients, our AGIS project manager is a FAA licensed pilot and ASPRS Certified Photogrammetrist who is highly experienced in aerial imagery processing.
