Course Description

Construction projects involve complex plans; environmental permits; and critical data that details layout, specifications, and other key design information. For a project to be successful, several aspects must be analyzed and considered including environmental impact, scheduling conflicts, takeoffs, budgeting, site safety, and logistics. GIS technology improves the mechanics and management for building new infrastructure by integrating design and site data, interfacing with machine control, and providing the framework for as-built data collection. All those involved in a project, such as engineers, owners, contractors, and the public, rely on the technology to open communication.
