Best Practices in GIS-Based Transportation Asset Management
FHWA’s Office of Planning recently published the report "Best Practices in GIS-Based Transportation Asset Management." The report, which is available here, provides background on GIS and asset management, describes how public agencies have been integrating the two, and identifies benefits and challenges to doing so. The information presented is gleaned from a literature review and interviews with several State departments of transportation and one county agency. The report also identifies some leading industry trends and new, innovative approaches to using GIS for transportation asset management.
