1. Introduction
A Geographic Information System/Spatial Information Management (GIS) is a collection of
software and geographic data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms
of geographically referenced information. In a conservative sense, it is a computer system
that is capable of integrating, storing, editing, analyzing, sharing, and displaying
geographically referenced information. In a more generic sense, GIS is a tool that allows
users to create interactive queries (user-created searches), analyze the spatial information,
edit data and maps, and present the results of all these operations.


GIS, as an information integration tool, has a wide range of application. The possibility of
integrating spatial and alphanumeric data has made it widely applicable to a variety of
fields. Recently, there has been a growing interest among organizations to use GIS to
enhance the decision making processes, at both strategic as well as operational levels. GIS
addresses many information needs of the decision makers. It helps them leverage their
spatial data more efficiently, by visually bringing together relationships among customers,
suppliers, and competitors.


GIS systems have been widely accepted in the transportation industry since its inception in
this sector during the late 1980s. During last few years, GIS has emerged and matured to a
sophisticated technology and is now applied to a wide range of transportation research and
development projects. The main advantages of a GIS for transportation (GIS-T) are quick
access and precise analysis of data, distributed across the transportation network. IS
software can rapidly retrieve relevant information from various sources, such as traffic flow,
land use, environmental and socioeconomic databases, etc., that can be useful for
transportation industry.


This report will highlight the potential of GIS software in the transportation secto
