Title: Successful Practices in GIS-Based Asset Management
Resource type: Website
Year published: 2014
Publisher: Transportation Research Board

The objectives of this research are to (1) develop guidance for how DOTs and other transportation agencies can enhance their asset-management capabilities through effective adoption of GIS technologies and (2) encourage more extensive adoption of GIS technologies by conducting pilot demonstrations and workshops on implementation of GIS-based asset management. The guidance should have two parts: (a) a presentation for senior DOT leadership providing the business case for investment in GIS technologies and (b) a presentation for practitioners of information on lessons learned from current practice, approaches to evaluating benefits of adoption of GIS technologies, and strategies for how an agency can effectively apply GIS technologies in transportation asset management.
