GIS as strategic management tool

  1. 1. GIS as strategic management tool Geographic Information System (GIS) can be used as a strategic management tool for the infrastructure development cycle from planning, environment assessment, survey, design, construction, safety and security, operations, disaster preparedness, maintenance and public information & dissemination. It can also be used in facilities management to include infra-related equipment pools, information technology resources and regional/district office buildings. It can also help in financial administration for monitoring expenditures in the central office, project management offices, regional offices and district engineering offices. Planning GIS technology can provide rich analytic and visual tools to find the right balance between the need to accommodate demand on public infrastructure and the responsibility to preserve quality of life and environmental sustainability of infrastructure projects. GIS can provide a framework to inform models, such as those used to forecast travel demand and plan capital improvements, and to support strategic decision making. In addition, GIS applications for making environmental evaluations can shed light on the consequences of various transportation alternatives.

  2. 2. Survey As a surveyor, you depend on a variety of software and technology in your daily workflows. GIS technology integrates with other systems while providing new functionality and a central database. A GIS database gives you a better way to easily manage, reuse, share, and analyze your survey data, saving you time, money, and resources. Because GIS software solutions are interoperable with the many data formats used in the field and office, you can deliver your data in the format required by your clients while maintaining the data’s core integrity. GIS software adds intelligence to spatial data, whether the data is generated in the field with GPS or remotely with lidar and photogrammetry. You can enter raw data, measurements, and field sketches directly into the GIS, enabling you to efficiently manage your data in a geodatabase with other spatial information. You can use GIS technology for collecting, importing, converting, and storing spatial measurement and computational fabrics. You can integrate computations, such as COGO and traverse least squares, and preexisting networks as well as import spatial data feature classes and relationships. With GIS software, you can bring data straight from the field into a geodatabase in a seamless workflow and take GIS data back into the field via a data collector or laptop computer. GIS software is customized to best meet your needs by optimizing functionality needed to complete a job.
