Geographic information systems for infrastructure asset management (C803)
Geographic information systems (GIS) have been widely used by environmental, scientific, geotechnical, survey and government planning communities, but less so in architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) until about the last 15 years. This change in use within the AEC sectors has evolved with greater demand for digital workflows and delivery. A well-informed design should lead to improved construction methods and materials and a better operated asset, with reduced costs, more sustainable materials, ease of maintenance and ease of use.
This guide sets out key aspects of using GIS, with supporting case studies for infrastructure asset management. By outlining the issues involved and lessons learned the reader can be better informed to start advancing the use of GIS and realise the benefits.
