RapidMap Sustainable Infrastructure Spatial Data Collection

Spatial Data Collection: A Key Component for Investing in Sustainable Infrastructure

Infrastructure is the foundation of economic growth and development. The ability of local and national governments to carry out inclusive, sustainable development can be enhanced through infrastructure asset management. It ensures that public infrastructure investments are being used properly and efficiently by providing better accountability, outcomes, and services to communities.

Benefits of Infrastructure Asset Management

  1. Improved financial performance

  2. Improved asset investment decisions

  3. Better risk management

  4. Improved services and outputs

  5. Demonstrated social responsibility and compliance

  6. Enhanced reputation

  7. Improved organisational sustainability

The need for effective asset management is as compelling as ever given the rising number of risks and challenges brought on by public health issues, climate change, and developments in digital technology. From the RapidMap perspective, Geospatial data and Digital Twins provide the perfect platforms to underpin better decisions for a sustainable future.

According to the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction, Infrastructure Resilience is the timely and efficient prevention, absorption, recovery, adaptation, and transformation of national infrastructure’s essential structures and functions, which have been exposed to current and potential future hazards. 

There are six interconnected Principles for Resilient Infrastructure as follows:

  1. Continuously learning

  2. Proactively protected

  3. Environmentally integrated

  4. Socially engaged

  5. Shared responsibility

  6. Adaptively transforming

Together, the six goals form a system of goals that achieve net resilience gain across all lifecycle stages of infrastructure (design, build, operate, de-commission) assuring the continuity of critical services through all phases of disruption management (preparation, absorption, recovery, and adaptation).  Bringing these six goals and other data models together can only be done effectively through the use of Data Visualisation, and this is dependent on the collection of assets and current spatial data to reflect the current status.
