The Geo-centric Railway

Why location matters in the Rail industry

A whitepaper researched and written by Daniel Irwin, Geospatial Lead for Crossrail, a £15B railway construction project in London and the South-East – at the time, one the largest infrastructure projects in Europe. Published in 2018, the whitepaper includes contributions from Transport for London, Network Rail, High Speed 2, Crossrail 2, London underground, EMAS, Skanska and Mott MacDonald.

The rail industry has always had a need to answer the question of ‘where’ and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) can provide that answer. This paper seeks to highlight some of the reasons why GIS should be used within rail organisations to address location based tasks, from planning through to operation and beyond.
