This program significantly increases communication and coordination between projects and saves tremendous time during the planning stages. Phase 1 included the Airport Expansion project’s future development areas of the new 10R/28L runway and Terminal 4 Gate Expansion and Apron project. To help meet design needs for those projects, efforts included location and as-built of 300+ drainage structures, establishing 70 horizontal and vertical control points encompassing 30 square miles, providing airport network control maps facilitating a base geodetic and vertical survey control system for the entire airport, topographic survey inclusive of 550+ acres for design activities of Runway 10R/28L, and aerial mapping of 34,900+ acres. Phase 2 included updating the atlas to facilitate and include recent additional projects such as the North Runway Improvement, Terminals 1, 2, and 3, North and Westside Developments, and Perimeter Road Upgrades. All work and deliverables were performed in accordance with airport circulars 150/5300-16A General Guidance and Specifications for Aeronautical Surveys specific to geodetic control, 150/5300-17B General Guidance and Specifications for Aeronautical Survey Airport Imagery Acquisition, 150/5300-18B, General Guidance and Specifications for Submission of Aeronautical Surveys to NGS pertaining to field data collection, and Geographic Information System (GIS) standards.
