State GIS LAND USE &Mapping ProgramPresented By:Matthew BakerGIS/CAD ManagerSC Aeronautics Commission
PROJECT GOALOur goal was to better manage South Carolina airportfacilities in order to achieve the most life out of airportimprovement projects. We also had a need to control thedistribution of existing assets, document management, landuse regulation around the airports, and safety inspectiondata. The integration of GIS with these core goals was avital foundation for our GIS best practices.
PROJECT TEAM• Matthew Baker – South Carolina Aeronautics Commission• John Robinson – Department of State Information Technology• Kevin Remington – University Of South Carolina GIS Department
TECHNOLOGY• ESRI’s ArcGIS Server 10.1• ArcMap 10.1• ArcPad• Trimble GPS analyst• Trimble GeoXT 6000 series handheld GPS• Trimble GeoXT 3000 series handheld GPS• Terra Sync• Pathfinder Office• Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise platform• Citrix Virtual Access• Android and Apple mobile ESRI applications (Coming Soon)• ARC SDE (future development)
DATA MANAGEMENT PROCESS• Data is “checked out” from the Geodatabase on the server tothe GeoXT handheld device.• Staff members can update features and add new or deleteexisting features.• Locations are all placed using GPS coordinates with approx.24” accuracy post processed depending on conditions.• Data is then “checked in” from the GeoXT handheld to theGeodatabase on the server.• Can also be updated in the office for features that do not needto be georeferenced using ESRI ArcMap software.
South Carolina AeronauticsGIS CAPABILITIES• Flexviewer Web Application for ease of use for the end user and non GIS user.• Updated inventories and condition on lighting and electrical systems for allpublic use airport facilities• Updated Pavement conditions and other pavement related data to allow morecost effective decisions for future airport pavement projects.• Allows for more accurate planning and engineering documentation.• FAAAirports-GIS ready and compliant• FAA Draft AC 5300-19 standards compliant• All information is easily and readily available for public use and distribution• Allows the ability to make clear zoning and parcel mapping available toanyone.

Type the address in the topwindow, city (optional) in the middle, and the zip code in the bottomwindow. Click the locate button, the results will be returned and the mapwill zoom to the first record. Notice that it returns more than just theaddress entered. The top entry should be the best match for the addressentered.. The others are the next closest matches.
South Carolina AeronauticsFLEXVIEWER TOOLSDraw & Measure ToolThe draw tool will let you put temporary marks/draw on the map viewer without permanentlyaltering the map or live map layers. The draw marks will also appear on printed maps. When you clickon the tool icon a widget appears showing various drawing instruments along with text, color, andfont size/line width. Measurements of what the user draws can be displayed on the map.Measurement units or the coordinate system can be selected. To show measurements on themap, click the check box next to the “Show Measurements on Map” label before you start drawing.Also be sure to set the desired units before you start to draw. The resulting measurements will bedisplayed on the map.
South Carolina AeronauticsFLEXVIEWER TOOLSDraw Point: will put a dot on the map wherever you click the cursor.Draw Line: will draw straight lines only. Click once to start the line,click again to insert a vertex/corner, and double click to finish theline.Draw Freehand Line: will draw straight and curved lines. Click andhold down the cursor and the line will follow behind the movementof the cursor. When you are finished, release the cursor and the linewill end.Draw Polygon: will draw straight edge polygon. Click once to startthe shape, click again to insert a vertex/corner, and double click tofinish the shape.Draw Freehand Polygon: will draw a freehand polygon. Click andhold down the cursor and a polygon will expand between the cursorand the point of origin. Release the mouse button to complete thepolygon.Draw Text: will add words to the map. Type the text into the textbox found in the widget. Select the color and font size you want.Click once on the draw text icon. Then click once on the map whereyou want the text to appear and the text will be displayed.Clear Drawing: will clear the entire map of all drawn features. Clickthe clear icon and all drawings/annotations on the map will beremoved.
South Carolina AeronauticsFLEXVIEWER TOOLSPrint Tool: 1. Click tool, the print window will open. 2. Type map title in thetitle window. 3.

South Carolina AeronauticsFLEXVIEWER TOOLSIdentify ToolThe Identify Tool offers the inverse of the Search. The user clicks a point on the mapand the application returns a list of all the features that are found at that point. Theuser can choose to identify all the layers available or can narrow the search by un-checking the boxes next to the layers that one is not interested in. All the layers canbe selected or unselected by right clicking the mouse over the list and selectingfrom the resulting pop-up menu.Once the user clicks a point on the map the tool flips to the results tab. Results areorganized in a scrollable list with the selected result expanded and showing itsattributes. The selected feature is also highlighted on the map. The user can scrollthrough the results by selecting them from the list.
South Carolina AeronauticsFLEXVIEWER TOOLSMap LayersThe Map Layers menu features tools used to directly manipulate thecontent of the map. The user can choose to view aerialphotography, airport NAVAID data, runway information, Electrical Studydata, and Parcel maps. Each layer may have sub-layers that are accessed byclicking the arrow at the left of each layer name. The User can turn layerson and off by un-checking the box beside the layer. By clicking on thebanner without releasing & dragging you can move the window toanywhere on the map that you want.
