The PortGIS (Projects) Web Application and Mayor Sanders’ Airport Plan

March 3, 2009

At the Port of San Diego we manage many properties which are under development. Reports and general information about the more substantial projects are prominently displayed on our external homepage, under the heading “Current Development Projects.” Many of these reports include maps which we might want to compare to existing infrastructure for a wide range of reasons. The PortGIS (Projects) web application intends to give Port employees the ability to compare plans for developments which effect Port properties.

In 2003, San Diego County Regional Airport Authority split from The Port of San Diego, but we often have overlapping interests an concerns. Over the years there has been a lot of debate about revamping Lindbergh Field or moving the airport to another location. On February 12, 2009, the Ad Hoc Airport Regional Policy Committee, chaired by San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders, released an Executive Summary (docs #354064) outlining their plan for Lindbergh Field. They also released an impressive video simulation. Click the Play button below to hear a KPBS story about the release of this document.

On page 11 of the Executive Summary is a Map titled “Recommended Development Plan.” In the video below I explain how to explore this map in relation to our high resolution aerial photography and our Port interests as represented in the 2007 Tidelands Mapbook.
