Your rail infrastructure is your most substantial investment. Your stakeholders count on you to make the best rail maintenance and investment decisions to prolong the life and safety of those assets. With Esri GIS technology, you can capture and maintain a highly precise rail asset inventory, so you know exactly where every one of your assets is located and its condition. Integrate GIS with any leading asset management solution to get the insight you need to make strategic decisions.

Asset inventory

A prerequisite for good rail asset management is a comprehensive asset inventory. Use GIS to identify the precise locations of all of your critical rail assets—from signaling and communications equipment to track and other wayside assets. With a rich set of tools and applications, GIS helps you maintain that inventory over time, so your data is always current.

Asset performance

Good rail asset management practice requires understanding asset degradation cycles and the performance of assets over time. GIS, combined with a comprehensive asset management solution, helps you maintain a state of good repair and stay ahead of maintenance activities. Move from reactive maintenance to predictive maintenance and avoid costly asset failures.
