Transportation professionals increasingly rely on geographic
information system (GIS) methods and technology to manage equipment and
infrastructure. Whether it's monitoring train locations, tracking flight paths and
noise levels, planning for highway maintenance, or improving bus routes, GIS
helps private organizations and public agencies improve safety and reduce costs.
The twelve case studies in this book demonstrate that GIS is capable of helping
balance the needs and desires of people to travel with the contradictory but
equally compelling need for clean air and uncongested roads.
Although it is impossible to address every issue of transportation management,
an effort has been made to be representative. Even if your particular branch of the
transportation industry isn't covered, chances are you'll recognize some common
concerns, realize new solutions, and discover useful problem-solving strategies.
So, buy this book and begin applying GIS to your transportation needs.
