GIS and Asset Management

Event Details

On February 13, 2006, the British Columbia Chapter of the Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA BC) hosted a one day seminar entitled GIS and Asset Management.

The speakers represented local municipalities as well as vendors and consultants who work with local municipalities. Chuck Hansen kicked off the formal presentations will an overview of asset management drawing on Hansen Technologies' broad experience in the area. The next two speakers focussed on data issues related to asset management. Data requirements are significant for asset management endeavours and these speakers gave some insights into their experience in collecting and processing the data. The last two speakers before lunch focussed on actual experiences with asset management at the City of Vancouver and the Township of Langley. 

After lunch, the focus of the first presentation was on the role of condition assessment in asset management. This was followed by a presentation on the financial aspects of asset management. This topic is sometimes overlooked, but is increasingly important in times of financial restraints and changing regulatory legislation. The last presentation of the day focused on the data aspects of asset management.
