GIS Technology for Asset-heavy Governments

Asset-heavy governments across the world set aside an abundance of money and time in managing assets owned by the public, state or government. Government fixed assets like roads, bridges, building structures, military equipment, water systems, power grids, wastewater systems, mechanical systems, vehicles and more remain “fixed” assets because governments put enormous efforts in conserving the conditional health, sustaining the performance and eliminating or mitigating risks of non-current assets.

However, in the long run, these assets deteriorate- in other words, degrade and decline value- with time, which is a huge drawback for public asset managers since replacement, repair and maintenance of such assets takes hoards of public money, time and effort. To add more brunt to this challenge, these infrastructure and assets are instigated for serving expansive communities, therefore, accommodating disparate locations. This is why asset managers of the new age are demanding state-wide visibilities to ensure all assets are interconnected and collectively maintained to meet their best conditional and structural levels despite the impactful changes they undergo dynamically.

This is why having a comprehensive idea of the GIS (Geographical Information System) technology is a key technological advantage for most governmental fixed asset managers. This article discusses the perks of GIS technology and how the government can drive towards a promising asset future by utilising it.

GIS Technology- A Simple Description

GIS technology is a computer system that uses IoT (Internet of Things) technology to connect assets to spatial patterns and geolocational relationships. In other words, asset managers can use this technology to gather location-related asset data via an interactive map model that represents the footprint where the assets are deployed in a location. For example, suppose a public asset manager wants to learn how the tree root intrusion of the road in ‘location A’ affects. In that case, the manager can simply use a GIS Map to tap on ‘location A’ and tweak the roads to gather an overview of the road conditions in real-time.

GIS Technologies Helping Modern Governments to Improve The Quality Of Life

Governmental asset managers utilise GIS maps to integrate, compile, analyse asset data, plot maps to leverage AI-driven geolocational assets insights to improve public services. This technology is a very useful governmental asset utiliser since it allows civic engagement that helps the governments to gather more comprehensive insights via public communication as well. Here are a few GIS uses that help governments make better asset decisions.
  • Governments use GIS maps to understand and operationalise asset solutions by integrating disparately-sourced data
  • GIS maps can be used to incorporate location intelligence to make high-level asset decisions for investing, maintaining, controlling, managing and replacing public assets
  • GIS maps are used by governments to get collective insights of all assets classes, including:

– Agriculture Assets 

-Aviation Assets 

-Defence and Military Assets

-Election Assets

-Emergency Dispatch Assets 

-Forestry Assets

-Human Service Asses

-Mining Assets

-National Mapping Assets 

-Transportation Assets 

-Utility Service Assets (water, wastewater, water recycling, power, gas, oil,  waste services and more)

Benefits of GIS Technology for Asset-centric Government Establishments

One of the specialities of SaaS (Software as a Service) GIS systems is that they can incorporate data from databases, websites, applications, satellite-based remote-sensing technologies and other data-rich sources. Tus, the GIS layers of these maps carry faster, scalable and reliable information for the user to get reliable geospatial data. Therefore, this technology can enable a range of benefits for governmental users, like:
  • Allows assets managers to get useful perspective in mitigating the risk of assets 
  • Allows teams to presuppose assets events and collaboratively support the civic engagement in extreme asset assets 
  • Boost the performance, integrity and longevity of assets deployed in massive footprints 
  • Get comprehensive insights on the total investment paradigms for years ahead for assets instituted critical locations (like urban areas, population-congested areas, wildlife conservation areas and more)
  • Guides the assets manager in gathering location-sensitive insights to solve asset-related challenges in pre-time
  • It amplifies the use of maps and location technology during asset management strategies 
  • This technology spurs local asset management initiatives via scalable, sustainable and smart implementation

GIS-driven Governments are Always One Step Ahead

GIS technology is reframing the future of public asset management since all governments, despite their geographical changes, economic imbalance, societal responsibilities, have to take up the serious responsibility of offering public service. Competent asset managers of the new age do not rely solely on asset data only. Instead, they are obliged to learn about the longitudes and latitudes of assets, public responses of asset management capabilities of the government, demography of locations, vegetation, wildlife, urbanisation information and many other asset-related aspects when making asset decisions. This is why asset managers in the public domain no longer find GIS as a fancy technological capability but a mandatory technology tool to execute sophisticated yet success-guaranteed asset decisions.
