FHWA’s Office of Highway Policy Information has established Internet accessible Communities of Practice (CoP’s) to support stakeholder dialogue on:
· The Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS),
· Travel Monitoring, and
· Motor Fuel / Highway Trust Fund Attribution
CoP's are networks of people with mutual interests, goals or expertise working together to exchange ideas and information, share and collaborate on projects, speed technology transfer, identify best practices, and advance the state-of-the-art in their fields. CoP's cut across organizational and geographic boundaries.
The Highway Performance Monitoring System CoP is dedicated to the open exchange of information and knowledge on all things related to HPMS. This forum allows anyone interested in HPMS to interact on any number of HPMS issues and to assist others in acquiring knowledge from an array of HPMS professionals throughout the country. The CoP’s link is at http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/ohim/hpmspage.htm
The Travel Monitoring CoP supports knowledge sharing related to the collection, editing, analysis and archiving of traffic counts, vehicle classification and weigh-in-motion data. The CoP’s link is at http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/ohim/tvtw/tvtwpage.htm
Motor Fuel / Highway Trust Fund Attribution: This site supports knowledge sharing on collection and analysis of motor fuel and associated highway trust fund attribution. This will allow interested parties to share on issues related to motor fuel and attribution. This site when available can be found at: http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/ohim/mfhts/mfhtspage.htm
