Abstract


GIS can providethe airport management staff with visual pavement information and powerful analysis tool. Mean while, the spatial information managed by GIS can ensure the accumulation of valid attribute data of airport pavement. Based on the principle and general implementation process of GIS and the characteristics of airport pavement management, this paper describes the implementation process of GIS in Iraqi Airport planning and design. To organize the spatial entities effectively, some layers are set according to the characteristics of spatial entities. The spatial database is established,and thenthe function design of the GIS software is presented including map exploring, map locating, spatial query, rendering style of map and output of map. In this paper the section on the ground was the case study, Representative the AGIS in building infrastructure layers of Baghdad international airport buildings and pavements. The results were two maps, the first include eleven layers and the other includes two layers, each layer hasinformation that describes the thickness of subsurface. In consequence of the above, comparative study for each type of pavement was made to find the most suitable pavement structure for Baghdad International Airport (BIAP).
