How GIS is shaping the Infrastructure of Future?
GIS technology is continually progressing and its applications are increasing at a rapid rate. From the advent of GIS, its hardware and software have enormously progressed. Today’s GIS systems are far more complex than the GIS of yesterday, and it will be even complex in the approaching days. What follows is the great future and possibilities of GIS, making the world better and advanced.
If you are wondering about the applications of GIS in shaping the infrastructure of future, then you just can’t miss reading for a next few minutes. Let’s begin.
- Urban Infrastructure – Remodeling the World
The urban development and planning can be implemented more efficiently with the help of GIS. The few factors, which we consider for choosing the location for urban establishments, are generally:
- Land should be vacant and flat.
- Accessibility to water resources.
- Area of vacant land.
- The vegetation demographic.
As it becomes super-simple to analysis the above factors through GIS tools like Hexagon Geospatial’s GeoMedia. From the decision-making about the land to choose the direction of its expansion and more – GIS is useful in all.
- Underground Water Utilities
Pipeline networks can be better planned with the GIS data as it allows better visualization and hence effective management. The available water resources, assets, networks, and pipelines can be simulated with accuracy through the GIS maps. Using the digital database, prepared through this practice, water distribution can be undergrounded. Not only water, oil and gas distribution processes can be also enhanced using this.
- Water Management
The main tasks of water management are:
- Deciding the distribution mechanism
- Collection and drainage
- Storm water management
- Waste water management
To plan the right ways of servicing the cities will need the water management infrastructure to be maintained through GIS. It can provide a platform for collecting the data, deciding the paths, finding the information about customers and select the integration methods using GIS technology while supplying water efficiently. The process will result in a well-planned system and least wastage of water and the energy, used in supplying it. The real implementation of the discussed scenario is possible through dynamic modeling and smart processing as deployable through ERDAS IMAGINE.
- Waste Management
The land use, environment care, natural resource planning, transportation management and better facilities through urbanization – all are the necessities of today. The obstacle which affects these all is improper waste management, especially in the country like India.
By deploying GIS to help out in this situation, we can perform route optimization, site selection, waste collection scheduling, recycling plants’ location selection and disposal management easily.
- GIS uses at Ports – For Better Sailing
For the maritime administration and port operations, GIS could be a boon. It allows easier management of everything, which can smoothen the sailing. Safety standards can be raised and decision making can be improved with the right implementation of this powerful technology.
- In Making Metro Ecosystem Perfect
Promoting and facilitating the excellent access to geospatial data, the metro ecosystem is one of the best applications of GIS. Sharing the accurate data in real-time, planning the metro stations and analyzing the moving trains is made easy with GIS’s deployment in this field. The tools such as ImageStation by Hexagon Geospatial allow high-volume photogrammetry and speedy processing for the discussed metro applications of GIS.
Real Life Implementation of GIS in Shaping of Infrastructure
Hexagon Geospatial solutions provides the comprehensive solution for converting the raw geospatial data to actionable data. It firmly collects the information to let you process and analyze it so that usable results can be delivered in infrastructure field.
There may be many other advantages of GIS, resulting in better infrastructure planning because technology is still growing and excelling. However, the truth is – GIS will have a great role in shaping the infrastructure of future.
