Abstract

This study reviewed the extent of geographic information systems (GIS) usage at Florida's transit agencies. A survey of these agencies was conducted to identify the trends and conditions of their GIS. In order to establish GIS benefits and trends, and to make recommendations for future GIS implementation, a comparison to a similar 1995 study was performed.
