I admit a mapping and geospatial data bias. The analytical power of location referencing business data (e.g., pavement, traffic, crashes, bridges, functional classification, etc., available in event layers) to analyze, translate coordinate information, and visualize it in a spatial context fundamentally changes how a DOT performs. Obtaining the capability to harness that power is not easy, but the Esri software and tools, namely ArcGIS Roads and Highways, reduce barriers for DOTs to achieve impactful operational advancements.
ArcGIS Roads and Highways extends the ability to fully leverage linear referencing capability and multiple linear referencing methods (LRM) to integrate data for a comprehensive view of road networks. It connects GIS data with disparate enterprise systems for real-time, unified data and workflow management.
