Case Study Report: Mobile Applications for GIS
Our latest case study report is now available here! This report explores how State Departments of Transportation (DOTs) currently employ mobile applications for a variety of uses, including asset management, data collection, maintenance, and construction. Five states were interviewed for this effort (Colorado, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, and Missouri) to understand the varied levels of scope and use of these applications, as well as to obtain feedback on what the Federal Highway Administration can do to facilitate the development of these processes.
