GIS Core Services Unit supports agency databases that contain geospatial data and the server- and cloud-based platforms on which our interactive map applications are built. They partner with internal and external customers:
- WisDOT business areas identify mapping needs and requirements to support internal operations, project planning and management, and many other activities. Part of this process involves gathering information from internal users, partners, customers, and/or the public.
- Developers create and maintain GIS data and applications for a wide range of audiences.
Culvert Asset Management Program (CAMP) was honored for special achievement in use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technologies at the 2020 annual conference (held virtually) by the mapping and spatial analytics company, Esri. WisDOT engineers developed CAMP through the Esri platform to replace a time-consuming manual process prone to reporting lags and consistency issues. Through an enhanced focus on training and real-time data, culvert inspectors are now doubling productivity while saving time and money. Esri’s special achievement awards are meant to show appreciation for organizations using GIS to understand complex data and meet challenges around the world. WisDOT’s project was recognized from a field of 300,000 other candidates.
