Authors: Keith Searles, Michael Buchanan
Infrastructure Data Sustainability (IDS) is a GIS-centric set of strategies aimed at maximizing the return on investment of infrastructure data. This innovative approach raises the bar on data standards, protocols, quality and overall re-usability. When properly employed IDS can leverage GIS as a highly accessible authoritative data source. IDS principles enable data to be leveraged throughout asset life cycles, across the enterprise, & amongst multiple agencies with limited increase in effort.
