Today, in our world where reliability coupled with performance is the norm, it leaves no place for any lapse and liability. The rise of putting new technologies to use, especially, the geographic information systems serve to provide governments and general citizens at large with highly accurate resource management tools, literally, bringing technology to the streets. The maintenance of complex networks of streets, roads, flyovers, bridges, highways and national highways can be monitored and optimized for efficiency.
Multi-Dimensional data on the networks of city roads enables the city council management to make informed decisions quickly and more efficiently. This data promotes the assignment of new infrastructure projects that reflect the city's requirements, be it like scheduling road repairs, expansions or renovations, drainage systems benefit from live, accurate, multi-dimensional geospatial information.
Creating detailed maps from traces generated by highly accurate GPS; so, if there is a road, we will have it on our map. These maps can be accessed, maneuvered and edited on the web; resulting in all users viewing the same live map, leaving no margin of error.
The locations at which repairs are required can be marked on the map and the status of projects can be monitored differently at various levels of the city council management level. Even roads that are closed for repair or to facilitate the completion of larger infrastructure projects can be marked on the map, enabling this information to be uniformly distributed.
The overlay of various geospatial features such as underground utilities, bus routes, traffic lights, etc on one map provides multi-dimensional information that can be toggled on or off as per requirement. Data mining improves the scope for studying of the infrastructure with the highest utility, better traffic management and efficient allocation of resources.
E-Governance not only makes the management of public resources easier for city council managements but, also opens up to citizen feedback, when this geospatial information is shared with them adequately.
