AUTOMATING INCIDENT MANAGEMENT WITH GIS TECHNOLOGY

The proposed Automated Incident Management (AIM) plan provides support for incident management operations as well as for planning and analysis for incident management. A prototype application has been designed by Texas Transportation Institute (TTI), which has been customized to provide fleet management capabilities to the Motorists Assistance Program (MAP) of the Harris County, Texas. With this application the operator in the MAP control center can track incidents and service patrol vehicles as well as dispatch the vehicles to incident sites. The road network in the GIS map for the AIM plan includes freeways, frontage roads, and major and minor arterials. The database consists of the county roadway inventory, hourly volumes, travel speeds, and emergency services such as hospitals, police, and fire stations. Referencing the database is supported by the names of roads and intersecting streets as well as by latitude and longitude values.
