The high congestion at the airports, due both to the increase of air traffic demand and the lack of significant intervention on the infrastructures, and the need to guarantee a high safety level in the airport areas ask for more intensive studies concerning' the problem of the ground circulation in an airport area. Particularly, high traffic airport areas must be continuously monitored in order to know at each time the position of all the moving objects, land vehicles and aircrafts, on the ground (aprons, taxiways, runways). Recent solutions used to resolve the problem of object positioning move towards the use of GPS apparatus. In this work, a system that integrates- GPS arid Geographical Information System is proposed for monitoring the airport areas, following the new requirements of Intelligent Transport System (ITS) applications and with an innovative communication network among GISs.
