Confronting the disrepair of infrastructure with GIS
Most of the nation's infrastructure does not meet the needs of its communities today. States, counties, and cities need to integrate systems that support their most vital physical framework. With GIS apps, you can easily assess several variables that can impact the decisions of where to invest next while simultaneously considering the restraints that governments have and the needs of the communities in which they serve. Learn how GIS can help governments be more responsive, productive, and engaged to reconstruct infrastructure for today and the future.
Three ways GIS can strengthen our nation’s infrastructure
Rebuilding a community’s infrastructure means taking into consideration what needs repair immediately – but also how those many infrastructure issues need to be addressed and in what order. Which would have the most immediate impact on a community or a population?
Communities need to rethink their infrastructure futures and decisions, not just react and rebuild. People are constantly and inevitably changing their patterns and the way they live. Organizations must focus their infrastructure priorities on their communities' needs.
Smart sensors, artificial intelligence (AI), drones, driverless cars, 3D, machine learning and more affect everything we build and plan for. So is your community imagining how it will look in 50 or even 100 years with these technology influences?
