Advanced GIS Applications for Civil Infrastructure Systems

Author: C.O. Uy and Thomas O'Rourke

Publication type: Acrobat PDF

"This draft paper addresses advanced applications of geographic information systems (GIS) for decision making related to civil infrastructure systems (CIS). A functional definition for GIS is proposed that can be used to categorize databases appropriate for GIS applications. The paper provides a brief description of GIS, and includes coverage of issues such as modeling and decision support systems, interoperability, geospatial data, and advanced GIS. It is the intention of this draft paper to summarize key features and issues related to GIS to stimulate discussion and feedback for planning and participation in a National Forum on Advanced GIS Applications for Civil Infrastructure Systems."
