Washington-Integrated Networked Geo-Based System (WINGS): Implementation Plan

Description: The purpose of this study is to provide the Washington State Department of Transportation, Aviation Division (WSDOT/AD) with the broad-based vision needed to apply new and merging technology in geographic information systems (GIS) to aviation planning and reporting systems. This is the second of two reports. The first report documented the user needs, established data and application priorities, and presented conceptual design for sharing geographic information pertaining to Washington's airports with airport sponsors, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and other WSDOT divisions. This report provides an implementation plan. This report builds upon the conceptual design to provide a broad-based implementation plan. Three implementation activities are described in phases. Project organization and staffing requirements for policy, management, technical operations, and technical support are discussed in Section 3. Section 4 addresses the estimated resource requirements for WSDOT to make the implementation of WINGS a success. Included are requirements for personnel, data conversion from a manual to a computer-based system, and hardware. The final section of the report discusses outstanding issues and what next steps are required to begin the implementation of WINGS.
