Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) for Infrastructure Asset Management 

 
CIRIA seeks industry partners for a new project exploring use of GIS for infrastructure asset management.

One of the many advantages of GIS, is the creation of a visual database with many data layers from numerous sources which can be used and shared with others. It facilitates a multidisciplinary collaborative approach from the start of the project. The data can be accessed, visualised and recorded through the use of many digital tools and this makes it ideal for widespread use.

The new guidance will focus on the available systems and their capability and how this can be integrated into existing asset management strategies. It is intended that the guidance will cover the benefits at the design and construction stage, which makes its use a necessity, as well as the long term benefits derived from an improved asset management capability.

The interface with Building Information Modelling (BIM) and how it is integrated with GIS will also form part of the project scope.
