ABSTRACT: The American Society of Civil Engineers estimates that by 2020 an investment of $3.6 trillion is needed to maintain our nation’s infrastructure in state of good repair. However, it is also estimated that there will be a funding gap of $1.6 trillion (ASCE, 2013). To efficiently utilize limited funding, GIS web platforms allow cities and state agencies to better maintain and monitor the health of their infrastructure and assets. ArcGIS’s web-based Flex interface can be used to create a customized web portal. This type of system, combined with recently collected infrastructure data, can utilize a suite of custom spatial analysis tools to better visualize data, develop statistics, and create data driven repair decisions to efficiently allocate funding. The City of Beverly employs such a web based application and has effectively used the GIS spatial analysis and visualization tools to maximize repair funding. The City also incorporates much of their own infrastructure and asset management data into the web portal to assist in the visualization of problem areas. Such real-world applications suggest that future expansion of web-based GIS platforms can increase the efficiency of repair decisions and methods which can have a significant impact on the health of the nation’s infrastructure.
