Abstract

Geographic information systems (GIS) represent a technology with considerable potential for important applications in transportation engineering. This paper focuses on the applications of GIS technology in the transportation routing area. Two case studies are presented: the first focuses on the design and analysis of different Arizona statewide waste tire collection transport networks corresponding to different percentages of total annual waste tires collected. The second case presents ongoing Environmental Protection Agency-sponsored research on the transportation routing and risk management of hazardous waste shipments across the U.S.-Mexico border region. Both routing applications take advantage of the efficiency and productivity of GIS technology and have been implemented on the GIS software TransCAD.
