GIS for infrastructure asset management – new CIRIA guidance

Join us for the launch of CIRIA’s new, highly anticipated, good practice guide 'Geographic information systems (GIS) for infrastructure asset management'.

Geographic information systems (GIS) have historically been a technology and data function that many organisations have outsourced to those specifically trained in its detailed operation and capabilities. The expectations of access and use have increased with the shift to a more digital society, as well as cheaper and faster digital hardware and software design improvements. The value GIS tools can provide to organisations is recognised across many sectors, along with the role it can play in asset management at different stages of an asset’s life cycle. This has led to a need for a wider range of people to access the data and tools to create, update analyse, and produce insightful visualisations and reports. There is also a need for a wider range of users, with varying digital skills, to absorb the results, visualisations and query the data to make decisions.

This guide provides the strategic context and a showcase of the benefits and challenges of using GIS for infrastructure asset management by sharing case studies illustrating its use and lessons learned.

The webinar will introduce the use of GIS for asset management and provide an in-depth review of the guidance document giving the audience an exclusive preview into its scope, contents and how to use it. Practical case studies will demonstrate how GIS is being deployed to manage assets and improve resilience.
