Every day public works employees rely on a variety of information systems to plan work, complete tasks, and update databases. They must engage with work order systems, asset management systems, permitting systems, 311 systems and complaint center systems. When geographic information system (GIS) technology is integrated with these systems, geography becomes the focal point for service and data, linking databases together, consolidating workflows and more effectively managing their work activities, assets and budgets. This program covers a brief introduction to GIS and the geo-database, the practical application and functionality of a GIS-centric CMMS, and the use of GIS tools and apps to manage future IoT and smart city possibilities in the public asset management sector.
After attending this session, participants will be better able to:
- identify the value of GIS as a fundamental tool to effectively manage their department’s activities, assets and budgets.
- promote the use of GIS as a decision making business requirement -beyond just a mapping tool.
- evaluate CMMS and GIS tools and apps which can leverage their GIS investment.
