Canadian cities ‘hopeful’ about fed. budget pledge for infrastructure

Article from Sat. March 16, 2013 Globe and Mail news section. I’m optimistic the fed’s acknowledgement of underfunding for municipalities will trigger a wave of investment for our crumbling cities.


The first thing that municipalities must do is create a detailed inventory of their infrastructure assets (pipes, hydrants, etc).  This is done with a combination of CAD and Geographic Information Systems.

Creating an inventory is just the first step not a complete system.  Municipalities also need the purchasing, work order and maintenance components to manage their infrastructure.

Systems such as Maintenance Connection, provide GIS/CAD inventory in conjunction with the entire asset management system.

Arrow Geomatics Inc. have teamed up with Maintenance Connection Canada to build a complete package of GIS (inventory) and Asset Management.
