Applicability of GIS tools in assessing performance of the transportation systems in Saudi Arabia

Applicability of GIS tools in assessing performance of the transportation systems in Saudi Arabia Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to investigate applicability of geographical information system (GIS) tools in assessing performance of the transportation systems which integrate spatial and GIS parameters and indicators. Design/methodology/approach – In this context, performance measures have been objectively related to the strategic goals and objectives identified by policy makers in particular areas. Findings – Results suggest that as a result of on the characteristics of transportation system, further understanding and considerations have been achieved regarding the performance of the investigated transportation systems and the needed transport polices in the study areas. Originality/value – The integrating of spatial data with the conventional data to assess performance of the transportation system. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png World Journal of Science, Technology and Sustainable Development Emerald Publishing
