GIS (Geographic Information Systems) technology is transforming how we manage, and use resources and assets for almost every sector in the economy. One of the main sectors that use GIS technology is the transportation sector that deals with movement of people and products. Starting from the early 2000s both Canadian and US departments of transportations decided to transform the transportation infrastructure of the countries to cope with the demands of safe, effective and intelligent traffic management with the availability of new technologies.



Companies and government organizations who are actively engaged in transportation infrastructure transformation, scrutinize recent developments and transformation of GIS technologies that started to provide out of box solutions and new perspectives to their challenges for effectively managing transportation.



GIS technology offers a variety of new image-based, AI (Artificial Intelligence) supported data driven solutions that provide time and cost savings, better road and infrastructure monitoring, traffic modeling and planning. Such applications of GIS also play an intermediary role for efficient development of other sectors such as smart city development and urban planning.



Global companies like Esri leading other SMEs to invest in this emerging niche. It seems a new wave of computer imaging companies will hit the markets soon which will contribute to the rapid transformation of intelligent traffic systems toward an image based real time management systems.

IBRIMS – Image Based Road Information Management System by GEOSPRO (Canadian Based GIS Company)

The solutions such as IBRIMS will allow state transportation departments or big construction companies to manage their entire road infrastructure including managing road inventory, road maintenance, and road planning with panoramic imaging. Similar computer imaging systems also help traffic flow management that will help traffic departments to manage city traffic based on real time or offline image-based data. SmartAnkaTM is a good example of such systems that provides traffic count and classification services for businesses and transportation departments of cities around the globe.
