The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANY/NJ) operates John F. Kennedy International, LaGuardia, and Newark International airports, which collectively represent the largest and busiest air transport complex in the world. To provide effective maintenance and management of the extensive network of airfield pavements at these airports, data display concepts from the field of geographic information systems were coupled with established pavement analysis techniques to create a network-level planning tool: the Integrated Airport Pavement Management System, IAPMS. This paper describes the IAPMS program and summarizes the implementation experiences at the three PANY/NJ airports.
