With rapid urbanization and population growth, the need for effective management of transportation and logistics requirements are increasing day to day. While number of vehicles is steadily increasing, availability of land resources for building new means of commutation is depleting. To effectively address these challenges, transportation professionals worldwide have discovered and embraced GIS as an important tool in managing, planning, evaluating, and maintaining transportation systems.
GIS supports end-to-end transportation infrastructure life cycle. With GIS, information from planning process can be brought into the design process and easily carried over into other areas such as as-built drawings, operations, and maintenance. Gains in both employee productivity and transportation system performance are made possible by the unique ability of GIS to integrate with a wide variety of technologies. Transportation organizations benefit by making use of the resultant information throughout their enterprise for better decision making.
