Case Study Report: GIS Open Data - Coming Soon!

Our latest case study report is coming soon! This report explores how State Departments of Transportation (DOTs) and Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) currently employ open data for applications in GIS. Two states and two MPOs were interviewed for this effort to understand the varied levels of scope and use of these applications, as well as to obtain feedback on what the Federal Highway Administration can do to facilitate the development of these processes.

Previous case study reports are available here.
