In this article the process of building three-dimensional airport model in Geographic Information System with the use of different GNSS techniques and classical geodetic measurements carried out at the Olsztyn-Dajtki airport was described. The main goal of this study was primarily to open new possibilities in the management of the airport with use of GIS, improving the safety of takeoffs and landings of the aircrafts and providing information for planning and possible expansion of the airport. Apart from the procedures for data acquisition in the direct field measurements, model construction process also covered the procedures associated with the system planning, procedures of secondary data collection (digitalisation), the processing of these data, characteristics of their sources and methods of presentation. A way to perform spatial data analysis was also presented, and the activities related to the preparation of the mapping were described.

Keywords: Geographic Information System (GIS); Digital Terrain Model (DTM); GNSS; Real Time Kinematic (RTK); Differential GPS.
