This webinar describes spatial data governance and management practices that span across multiple business units and users, in addition to the GIS and LRS units. Spatial data governance involves creating, managing and sharing the data models associated with roads, assets, projects, traffic, safety, mobility etc., using enterprise data systems, including but not limited to Asset Management system, Traffic and Safety Systems, Project Planning and Programming Systems, Design and Construction systems, GIS and Linear Referencing System (LRS).

The presenters gave examples of how they model data from the perspective of multiple business users and stakeholders, and, how data is shared across enterprise systems, to support business use cases including but not limited to the following:

  • Provisioning existing assets data in GIS, LRS and Lidar systems for use in Design & Construction
  • Delivering as-built assets and post-construction inspection data to Asset Management
  • Exchanging road network & roadway characteristics, projects and asset data in Project Management, LRS & Asset systems for project planning, programming, asset life cycle analysis, operations & maintenance, emergency response, risk & resiliency analysis
  • Building GIS Network for Travel Demand Modeling and Forecasting, Routing and Network Analysis
