Use Cases

Here are a few examples of how you can put Esri Roads and Highways to work for you.

Show/Hide All Use Cases
Open data management to business data owners

Your GIS organization can maintain the roadway LRS while delegating business data management to the data owners. Use the Roadway Characteristic Editor web application to empower roadway inventory data maintainers to edit and maintain their own data.

Keep assets, pavement, traffic, and safety systems aligned with roadway changes

Centralize roadway LRS management so business systems don't duplicate effort by managing multiple copies of an LRS. Publish web services that can be integrated with other business systems to keep measures in alignment with roadway edits.

Produce information needed for federal aid funding

Use configurable geoprocessing models to create the Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS) data products needed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) for state federal aid funding. Run checks against your data finding errors. Use the Roadway Characteristic Editor to view and correct errors in your data.

Make roadways safer and optimize traffic flow

Use ArcGIS Desktop to do time-based visualization and analysis of traffic, crash data, and roadway asset data.

Maintain a centerline for all roads by collaborating with local governments

Build a statewide roadway LRS network that includes local government managed roadways. Use scriptable loading tools to merge roads provided from the local governments with statewide roads.
