    Purpose & Background

    Learn from applications implemented within the asset management industry, through programs implemented by the Federal Highway Administration, Federal Geographic Data Committee, and other state and local organizations.

    Course Benefits

    • Become familiar with the steps and methodologies used to implement data collection programs that leverage GIS resources within asset management agencies.  
    • Carry out a refinement of asset data through spatial data analysis operations. 
    • Understand key concepts and processes that are used to efficiently share analyzed spatial asset management data within the organization and with the public through case studies.  

    Who Should Attend?

    • Public agency engineers  
    • Public agency planners
    • Consultant engineers  
    • A/E contractors
    • GIS analysts and project managers

    Learning Outcomes

    • Identify who, why, and what type of asset information is needed to develop data-driven decisions within asset management agencies.
    • Employ GIS applications to improve asset management operations within two critical decision-making subjects.
    • Identify the three main data elements within the Model Inventory of Roadway Elements, which can be used to develop Asset Data Models for other applications.
    • Use conceptual hourly production costs to estimate the cost of a data collection project.
    • Use four steps to develop a quantile classification of geographic asset data.
    • Identify at least one challenge in simple boolean overlays and develop an analysis strategy to overcome it.
    • Describe at least three methods for integrating GIS and engineering design applications to improve the efficiency and quality of engineering design projects.
    • Assign roles and responsibilities based on asset data analysis completed through GIS applications.
    • Select one of the four attribute measurement scales that can best display a specific asset management dataset.
    • Evaluate at least one benefit for using centralized data repositories to improve the internal distribution of GIS asset management data.
    • Use at least three benefits of metadata for sharing information with the public that facilitate the management of GIS asset data.
    • Using a basic workflow framework, develop an application specific coordination algorithm between GIS and Enterprise Asset Management systems.
