Middle Georgia GA URISA Subchapter Luncheon: Asset Management with GIS

GIS converts asset management standards, best management practices, and institutional knowledge into an operational asset management program. The quantified steps of building inventories with administrative overlays set the stage for predicting outcomes. The single greatest benefit of using GIS is to create a geospatial and temporal model of the built and natural environment to identify, calculate, and predict risk.
