Yotta DCL showcases MAP-21 system at GIS-T Symposium

May 01, 2013 -- Delegates to the annual GIS for Transportation Symposium (GIS-T) will discover how Yotta DCL technology can help States highways departments meet MAP-21 asset management requirements. Yotta DCL will be on hand in the Technology Hall at the Boise Center, Idaho (May 5 to 8, Booth 5) to discuss how its visualized asset management system Horizons will support engineers with developing their risk-based asset management plans for the National Highway System.

Using Horizons, State highways departments can input and integrate a wide range of asset, condition and social data to give an integrated, visualized perspective on highways assets and their condition. These are mapped digitally and presented in a user-friendly format that not only provides fast interpretation of data by highway engineers it also enables them to show and communicate their findings in a meaningful way to colleagues, officials and public.

By bringing together these datasets into one system that combines GIS, pavement and asset management, engineers can develop efficient maintenance and repair schemes using the most cost-effective treatments that ensure their budgets are maximised.

Developed with continuous input from leading UK highways authorities, Horizons also offers an analysis module that enables engineers to configure various treatment options based on budget or service level expectations. This allows performance targets to be set and the modeling of different scenarios as well as enabling the accurate prediction of highway condition over time. Skid resistance and accident data can also be used by Horizons to model how these have an effect treatment choice.

“GIS-T delegates have a great opportunity to learn how Horizons will help them meet their MAP-21 obligations. Some States have taken part in our webinars already and have recognized the benefits that our visualized asset management system can bring by bringing data alive for the user. Instead of using disparate applications, it brings together GIS, pavement and asset management into a single unified user-friendly hosted system. This combined functionality allows users to manage multiple sets of data, make cost predictions, plan and model various road maintenance scenarios, build schemes and ultimately, make better, more informed decisions. We believe there is nothing else like it on the market as our UK user base can testify,” says Nick Smee, Yotta DCL’s Managing Director.
