Within the framework of the development of the project Geostatistic Transport Information System (SIGET), are the conception, organization, development and results of the phase corresponding to the Transport Infrastructure National Inventory (INIT). This was done with the technological support given by the Global Positioning System (GPS) for the generation of georeferenced information in the field and of the Geographic Information System (GIS) Arc/info for its later processing. The objective of INIT deals with the generation of digital records which contain georeferenced information about the outline of more than 95,000 km. of paved highways and more than 160,000 km. of rural roads in the country, plus a series of attributes related to the highway infrastructure (bridges, culverts, and service stations among others). The practical utility of the resultant information is pointed out and potential applications of SIGET are identified, derived from the advantages offered by their management in a GIS.
