Using GIS in Traffic and Transport Infrastructure Solutions

Introduction:

Authorities in many developed countries now actively use Geographic Information System (GIS) for highways and transport management, mainly due to the benefits of falling costs and increasing ease in planning, monitoring and managing complex systems involved in transportation planning and management, accident analysis, and route planning.
The Geographic Information System (GIS) tools and techniques significantly aid in determining capacity enhancements, improving operations, and identifying the most strategic investments for keeping the transportation system in any country running optimally. This training course is designed not only to cover the technical aspects of how to use Geographic Information System (GIS) but also to develop critical spatial thinking and spatial decision-making skills.

Targeted Groups:

  • Traffic & Transportation Engineers and Professionals.
  • Professionals in Urban Planning and Development.
  • Project Managers in Infrastructure Solutions Consulting.
  • Data Analysts, Technicians in Traffic Management Centers.
  • Researchers and Consultants.
  • Practitioners in Traffic and Transport Engineering.
  • Traffic Safety Professionals.
  • Highway and Roadway Design Engineers.

Course Objectives:
At the end of this course the participants will be able to:

  • Have a thorough understanding of how Geographic Information System (GIS) can help in transportation studies.
  • Identify trends in traffic operations and safety performance .measures, leading to improvement in transportation safety.
  • Detect root causes of traffic incidents and determine effective countermeasures.
  • Evaluate the performance of segments, corridors, networks, or regions.
  • Pinpoint hot and cold spots via density estimation heat mapping.
  • Conduct complex spatial analysis required to plan the transportation systems of the future.
  • Build dynamic and rich mapping applications.
  • Gain critical spatial thinking skills and become confident in spatial decision making.
