GIS application for the management of the paving in the Principat d'Andorra

The Department of Transportation of the Government of Andorra manages a road network of almost 300 km of general roads in a country with an average altitude of over 2,000 m.

The GIS Ferms project was created with the aim of developing an application to create a practical tool for planning medium and long-term measures to ensure safe, high-quality service with respect to the existing paving on the road network.

The chosen method involves creation of a relational database to store the data and an application that enables acces to the same in GIS format by means of a map. The result is thorough knowledge of the condition of the paving of the road network. Process automation and enhanced decision-making are also obtained. The application enables substantiation of decisions on the basis of empirical data.
