What is GIS ?

Geographic Information System(GIS) are Computer Software


and Hardware System, that enable users to Capture, Store,
analyze, Visualization and Manage Spatially referenced Data.

Examples Of GIS Applications.


Crime Mapping
GIS and Hydrology
Remote Sensing Applications
Road Networking (Transportation)
Traditional Knowledge GIS
Wastewater and Storm water Systems
Waste Management

GIS For Road Networking

Life Cycle.

Design Section
Integrate GIS with most design tools, including CAD, bringing greater
analytic and cost-estimation capabilities to your infrastructure design
process.

Surveying Section
Manage and store GPS data and survey
measurements more effectively.

Construction Management
GIS helps organize all relevant project information, from survey data, soils,
and geotechnical studies to planning, environmental studies, engineering
drawings, and project maps. and especially different types of layers.

Can Manage roads


which avoid difficulties
of Terrain.

Stelvio pass - Italy

Italy's Stelvio pass is located at the east of the Alps, near the Swiss border.The road is risky because of its 48 sharp
turns at 9,045 feet above sea level. It is known as one of the longest winding roads in the country. Although there
are no high cliffs along the road, people are advised to drive slowly.

Operation Section
Traffic Management
GIS take a central role in developing effectively traffic
management strategies
GIS have Capability of viewing comprehensive picture of
current traffic Condition (Situation)
Further those latest Information can get to the Drivers using
online sources.
Its allow to know Road closures and
conditions/situation related for Drivers.

Order

Modern Road management agencies have gained productivity and


efficiency by integrating maintenance and work order management
systems with GIS.
Maintenance management systems allow more efficient scheduling of
maintenance activities.
As a example we can manage better days for Maintenance activities in
particular road areas.
Also we can identify how material can we use for maintenance
activities and further cost and quantity.

Planning Section
Transportation
Planning

In Planning Section, we can identify better transportation pattern in


particular Road Networks.

Transportation Safety Analysis


GIS allows Roads departments to accurately capture and analyze
traffic accident information as well as identify dangerous Road
segment locations with high accident rates.

Construction
Project information, survey data, soils, and
geotechnical studies to planning,
environmental studies, engineering drawings,
and project maps.
GIS makes this information easily available to
project staff using a browser interface.

Operation
Taking some decisions when the process is ongoing.

Conclusion
GIS is Not only a company of Esri
It is contain lot of technologies
According to new technologies GIS also growing
up
Therefore GIS is one of a best tool for planners to
deal with the space
