Designing Geodatabases for Transportation addresses the construction of a GIS to manage data describing the transportation facilities and services commonly organized around various modes of travel. Although details of each mode can be quite different, this book demonstrates how all modes of travel follow a basic conceptual structure consisting of an origin, a destination, a path between the two, and a conveyance that provides the abillity to move along the path. Designing Geodatabases for Transportation explains best practices for building and implementing geodatabases for transportation in a manner that enables flexibility and use by multiple parties, and provides solutions for existing problems created by unsystematic design.
