Using Spatial Data, Tools and Technologies
To Improve the Delivery of Transportation
March 23 -24, 2002, Charleston, South Carolina
New spatial data, tools and technologies are enhancing and
streamlining transportation program delivery activities in many parts of
the country. The TRB Committee on Statewide Data and Information Systems
is hosting a peer exchange to identify the kinds of spatial data tools and
information that are most effective in delivering multi-modal transportation
programs. The optimum use of these tools in improving program delivery will
also be explored.
Results of the exchange will provide insights into what investments are
likely to yield the highest value for transportation agencies.
Invitations will be extended to 15-20 members
of the TRB Committee on Statewide Data and Information System and other
participants who are involved or interested in implementing spatial data
tools and technologies to operate, manage and improve transportation programs
within their agencies and departments.
Format and Topics
The peer exchange program will include 2-3
opening presentations highlighting the role and value spatial data, tools
and technologies offer. Subsequent
group discussions and brief individual state presentations will focus on:
examples of where new spatial data, tools and technologies have led to improved
decision making, streamlined program delivery activities and/or more comprehensive
analysis of modal choices and alternatives.
associated with the implementation of new spatial data tools and technologies,
including those associated with integrating data with different scales and
uses and applications of nationally available data sets.
The role of remote sensing and other emerging spatial data technologies
Results of the peer
exchange will provide findings and insights into what kinds of spatial data,
information, tools and technologies can yield the most value and benefit
in terms of improving transportation program delivery processes for transportation
of key findings, conclusions and recommendations will be prepared and shared
with others in the transportation community.
