Historically, engineering departments and public works professionals have embraced technological advances that have helped build better, safer communities. Geographic information system technology provides the tools for creating, managing, analyzing, and visualizing the data associated with developing and managing infrastructure. GIS is used in different processes and workflows in many engineering department. GIS assists engineering employees with maintaining land records, traffic flow, designing utilities, and protecting the environment. These complex and crucial tasks require powerful and sophisticated tools. With GIS tools, managers can map, plan, and analyze infrastructure by utilizing accurate mapping tools that can incorporate survey data and integrate existing computer-aided design (CAD) data. Data modeling available using GIS enhances planning activities.
