Geospatial solutions w/ Airplane Geeks

NV5 Geospatial has been a trusted partner to airport planners, engineers, facility managers, and contractors whose objective is to build, expand, and to make improvements while meeting FAA regulatory and safety requirements. We have more than five decades of experience providing industry leading geospatial services and solutions to hundreds of airports and airfields. We have completed hundreds of ALP projects across the United States including our US territories (Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Northern Mariana Islands). Our clients trust us because we provide accurate data to meet their and the FAA’s expectations. 

Master Plans & ALPs

Better manage airport improvement and expansion. Our services include high-accuracy base-map generation, image and elevation data acquisition, airspace analysis for vertically and non-vertically guided runways, and mapping and attribution for Airport Layout Plans (ALPs) and eALPs. We were the first geospatial services firm in the nation to deliver an eALP project to the FAA and have it approved. NV5 Geospatial is at the forefront in providing airport planners, engineers, and facility managers with high accuracy topographic maps, planimetric maps, aerial imagery, and analytics to meet the Federal Aviation Administration’s Advisory Circulars: AC 150/5300-16, 17, and 18. Services include imagery acquisition, ground survey, digital orthophotography,high-accuracy base-map generation, airspace analysis for vertically and non vertically guided runways, and mapping and attribution for Airport Layout Plans (ALPs).

Engineering Design Mapping and Surveys

Provide airport engineers with the proper information for any runway, taxiway, or airport design need. Our solutions include engineering-grade mapping, engineering surveys, aeronautical surveys, and as-built documentation, all delivered in accordance with the FAA’s Advisory Circulars.

Obstruction Analysis

Identify and mitigate obstruction hazards so that aircraft can safely approach, land, and depart from an airport. We can provide an up-to-date status of runway approaches and detect obstructions such as treetops, poles, towers, antennas, buildings, and other structures in accordance with FAA requirements.
