The main intent of this course is to assist practitioners in development, maintenance, and operation of spatial databases within infrastructure management applications. Spatial databases are the brain of spatial information systems used to manage infrastructure asset data for private and public agencies, such as municipal utility agencies, state transportation departments, or regional telecommunication companies. The structure and use of asset management spatial databases and processes should be planned in advance because they are an integral part of the development of Asset Management GIS platforms. This course is divided into three key chapters. In the first chapter, the course will cover key elements needed for the development of spatial databases. Through the second chapter, practitioners will learn effective methods used to maintain asset management databases used for spatial analysis. And in the last chapter, concepts will be covered in the management required to operate spatial databases successfully within asset management applications.
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
Learning outcomes are assessed through multiple tests, interactive knowledge checks, and case studies, as well as weekly reflection exercises.
