    What is GIS and How Can it Help Us?

    • The analytical power of a geospatial database helps agencies evaluate information in a system-wide manner, which allows them to obtain insight about their infrastructure even in areas with obscure data.
    • As the cost for rehabilitating an asset can be at least half if not a tenth of the cost to replace or repair it, agencies need to have a system-wide approach so that they can move from a reactive operations mode to a proactive mindset.
    • The geospatial management of asset networks allows private utilities and public agencies to develop data-based asset management plans in-line with the agency goals and the community needs.
    • It’s a known fact that the use of a geospatial asset management system improves the operations of agencies while at the same time allowing them to stretch their maintenance funds.

    The main intent of this course is to familiarize practitioners with applications of GIS within asset management. This course will provide practicing professionals within private and public utility agencies with the knowledge necessary to capitalize on the efficiencies of using GIS in infrastructure management applications. General GIS and asset management concepts will be covered throughout this introductory course that can assist practitioners in making decisions on the best‐suited applications for their respective utility or infrastructure network.
