Libya has suffered forty-two years of neglect with a deficit in management and development in its transportation infrastructure. That deficit comes from a scarcity of data, and the current poor approach in the country to developing its transportation infrastructure management system. As the first step to help the government of Libya rebuild itself, this project will conduct a full inventory of its facilities for a plan to manage and rebuild their network of roads, ports, and streets, which is one of the most important infrastructure features in the country. The main purpose of this project is to help Libya’s government reduce and manage this deficit by using GIS technology to compile and manage spatial data on its transportation infrastructure. Those data will be managed in a geodatabase to produce a basemap with a series of layers, such as road centerlines, railroads, administrative boundaries, facility sites, streams and lakes, and building footprints. In addition, that basemap will be used to produce a sample application for a transportation infrastructure use case.
