Using GIS for Collaborative Land Use Compatibility Planning Near Airports

This report offers guidance for using geographic information systems (GIS) as a collaboration tool to encourage compatible land use around airports. The guidebook opens with a description of the perspectives, goals, responsibilities, and concerns of the federal government, airports, and local communities to ensure that each has a good understanding of the others’ missions and priorities. It then introduces the potential benefits that GIS might have on fostering collaboration. The remainder of the report offers guidance on initiating and maintaining collaboration, and for developing, sharing, and using data. A key feature of the guidebook is examples of how GIS was used collaboratively to address various land use compatibility issues, including aircraft noise, obstructions, wildlife hazards, and solar glare. A set of appendices supplements the guide by summarizing the role of government, providing a brief history of FAA aeronautical surveys, case studies, and example data sharing agreements.
