A Geographic Information System/Spatial Information Management (GIS) is a collection of software and geographic data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information. In a conservative sense, it is a computer system that is capable of integrating, storing, editing, analyzing, sharing, and displaying geographically referenced information. In a more generic sense, GIS is a tool that allows users to create interactive queries (user-created searches), analyze the spatial information, edit data and maps, and present the results of all these operations.
GIS, as an information integration tool, has a wide range of application. The possibility of integrating spatial and alphanumeric data has made it widely applicable to a variety of fields. Recently, there has been a growing interest among organizations to use GIS to enhance the decision making processes, at both strategic as well as operational levels. GIS addresses many information needs of the decision makers. It helps them leverage their spatial data more efficiently, by visually bringing together relationships among customers, suppliers, and competitors.
GIS systems have been widely accepted in the transportation industry since its inception in this sector during the late 1980s. During last few years, GIS has emerged and matured to a sophisticated technology and is now applied to a wide range of transportation research and development projects. The main advantages of a GIS for transportation (GIS-T) are quick access and precise analysis of data, distributed across the transportation network. GIS software can rapidly retrieve relevant information from various sources, such as traffic flow, land use, environmental and socioeconomic databases, etc., that can be useful for the transportation industry.
One of the key market trends of GIS in the transportation market includes ‘Geographic Data Mining and Pattern Analysis’ (search of patterns in geo-databases). It will become more important in the transportation sector, as information regarding traffic congestion and space-time correlation become available through Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and Location Based Services (LBS). Conventional GIS tools are not effective in handling massive and complex spatial, and temporal linkages in the transportation and land use systems. Geographic Data Mining will help in determining relationships such as effect of a crash on traffic, or traffic pattern on a newly constructed highway, etc.
