The Interoperability of Computer-Aided Design and Geographic Information Systems in Transportation
Report now available
As transportation agencies increasingly work toward streamlining their business processes, they face a variety of challenges in seeking to improve the interoperability of GIS and CAD. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) sponsored a research effort to explore the status of GIS and CAD integration and interoperability in the transportation field, and the report is now available here.
The report discusses how the following agencies use GIS and CAD together, how they use GIS-CAD interoperability to meet their needs, and the challenges, lessons learned, and benefits encountered by these agencies while implementing interoperable systems and striving toward full integration. The agencies include:
