    • ( Exchange Programme )
    • Transportation Management Information System and Experimenttion is an optional course for the major of transportation engineering and related disciplines. The course introduces the detailed application of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in the transportation related area, which intends to explain the concepts, principles, and the reality of using Geographic Information Systems (GIS). The course consists of three parts: the first part is the fundmentary theory of GIS for transportation, with the focus on the concept of GIS-T, data acquisition, data model and organization, and the corresponding spatial data operations; the second part is GIS-T, and transportation oriented GIS, and development technology; the third part is the application cases, with focus on typical GIS-T applications within the transportation area, including transportation planning, real-time traffic control, transportation safety, public transit route planning, and passenger service information systems, and so on.
    • Course Syllabus:
    • After completing the course, students should:
      1. To let students to understand the principle, technology and methods of transportation related GIS.
      2. To provides students with a very effective tool for capture, analysis, and display of spatial data that is crucial to the planning process.
      3. To let students to understand transportation related GIS technology, and use various GIS methods to analyze and design transportation systems.
      4. To provides planners with a very effective tool for capture, analysis, and display of spatial data that is crucial to the planning process.
      5. The course is both theoretical and practical (i.e., very hands-on), addressing both the structure of geographic information systems and their use for spatial analysis and data management.
