Esri's Roads and Highways: A Data Integration Solution
Wednesday, December 5th, 2012 2pm ET / 1pm CT / 11am PT
This webinar focuses on key reasons Departments of Transportation (DOTs) are adopting Esri Roads and Highways, a new solution designed to help DOTs and Highway Management agencies seamlessly integrate roadway data and information from multiple sources across the organization. The solution gives a comprehensive view of roadway networks to provide better decision support for planning, operational management and maintenance. Recognizing that many agencies struggle with data integration issues because of the use of different linear measurement systems, this geographic information system (GIS) based solution is designed to help agencies more effectively integrate information from separate business areas into a common information framework.
