Plans & Data Submission

 

The Plans & Data Submission process takes place once the FAA ADO/Region concurs with the project.

Plans help the Airport Sponsor, FAA, NGS, and everyone else in the project review and understand the requirements prior to commencing work. The work flows between the airport sponsor (for submission) and National Geodetic Survey (NGS) (for approval and verification).

·       A project that submits data for verification will be validated by the system, then reviewed, verified and approved by NGS.

·       A project that submits data for validation will be validated only by the system, then reviewed and accepted by the airport sponsor

For an existing airport data project, only the Survey Data File is needed for validation. Follow this link to Upload the Survey file. The rest of this page pertains to new projects.

New airport survey projects vary depending on different airport categories. The Airports GIS web site offers plan templates for the surveyor/consultant to follow. They include:

·      Sample template for Survey and Quality Control Plan (AC 150/5300-18)

·      Sample template for Imagery Plan (AC 150/5300-17)

·      Sample template for Geodetic Control Plan (AC 150/5300-16)

For a new airport survey project, follow the steps below.

The system displays a Survey & Quality Control Plan page for your first submission. This is the default plan submission order, but you can upload plans in any order.

3.    Click the Add Document link to add your plan to the GIS system.

A dialogue box prompts you to upload the plan. Itmust be in PDF format.

4.     Click BROWSE to locate your plan, then SUBMIT to upload.

Your plan is posted on the Survey & Quality Control Plan page.

5.    When you have uploaded all your plans and supporting documents, click SUBMIT to complete this process.

That completes your Survey &Quality Control Plan submission.

The system locks out Add Document and Delete, then lists your next action. You may submit other plans for your project, such as a Geodetic Control Plan or Imagery Plan, if required.

            Geodetic Control Data

All deliverables required by your project (per AC 150/5300-16) can be packaged and uploaded as one zip file to NGS.

1.    Click the Geodetic Control Data tab on the Project Summary page.

The Geodetic Control Data submission page displays.

2.    Click the Add Document link to add your plan to the GIS system.

A dialogue box prompts you to upload your data. Geodetic control data can be submitted in a zip file.

3.    Click BROWSE to locate your data. Click SUBMIT to upload it.

Your geodetic control data is posted. You can, if needed, review or delete the document you just uploaded.

4.    When you have uploaded all documents, click SUBMIT to complete this process.

That completes your Geodetic Control Data submission.

The system locks out Add Document and Delete, then lists your next action.

The system also notifies NGS to review and approve your geodetic control data.

            Imagery Data

1.    Click the Imagery Data tab on the Project Summary page.

The Imagery Data submission page displays.

Note while the actual imagery and orthoimagery data required by your project (per AC 150/5300-17) is being sent to NGS and FAA by non-electronic methods (FedEx, DHL, other shipper), you must provide the shipping information and tracking number in the Comments box so the team knows how and when imagery and orthoimagery were shipped.

2.     Enter the shipping info and click SUBMIT.

Note there will be no imagery review/approval action assigned to NGS until you complete this step.

Your Imagery Data shipping information is posted on the Imagery Data page.

NPIAS Non-Part 139 Airport - Plans & Data Submission for a New Project

If you submit Geodetic Control Data for verification, follow the same steps as submitting for NPIAS Part 139 Airport.

Non-NPIAS Airport - Plans & Data Submission for a New Project

If you submit Geodetic Control Data for verification, follow the same steps as submitting for NPIAS Part 139 Airport.

If a Non-NPIAS airport submits survey data only for validation, the airport sponsor must review the validation and accept/approve to have new survey data stored in the GIS database.
