Spatial Analysis GIS provides tools for modeling information to support more intelligent, faster decisions; discover and characterize geographic patterns; optimize network and resource allocation; and automate workflows through a visual modeling environment. GIS Solutions for Civil Engineering Civil engineering is about developing and sustaining infrastructure. The profession covers many areas of interest and a broad range of expertise. As a result, civil engineers work with a voluminous amount
more &raquo; ... of data from a variety of sources. Geographic information system (GIS) technology provides the tools for creating, managing, analyzing, and visualizing the data associated with developing and managing infrastructure. GIS allows civil engineers to manage and share data and turn it into easily understood reports and visualizations that can be analyzed and communicated to others. This data can be related to both a project and its broader geographic context. It also helps organizations and governments work together to develop strategies for sustainable development. Thus, GIS is playing an increasingly important role in civil engineering companies, supporting all phases of the infrastructure life cycle.
