Why WISRD?

 

  • To get the big picture, cross-sector view of city infrastructure conditions and vulnerabilities
  • To identify systems dependencies, and prioritize upgrades and repairs accordingly
  • To encourage data sharing and cross-disciplinary collaboration
  • To develop smarter current and long-range plans that take both above and below ground infrastructure into consideration
  • To make wiser CAPEX investment decisions backed by current, objective information

 

WISRD integrates information from different organizations, sectors, and departments, which provides city leaders with a more holistic and complete picture of the vulnerabilities of existing municipal infrastructure than was possible in the past.

 

Valuable insights can be derived from data which (in most cases) already exists, and when displayed in GIS maps, highlights infrastructure vulnerabilities. This approach significantly increases transparency to build support for infrastructure investment decisions.
