AbstractThis paper provides an overview of the state-of-practice for using geographic information systems (GIS) to manage municipal infrastructure. It outlines geospatial tools and technologies that augment GIS data collection such as global positioning systems, personal digital assistants, mobile computing, automated vehicle location, road weather information systems, and remote sensing. It describes associations and networks that assist GIS education, research, and technology transfer. It provides examples of GIS implementations for managing municipal infrastructure from the body of GIS research and practitioner literature.
