GIS Webcast: South Carolina Department of Transportation (SC DOT) - Projects, Programs, the STIP and MAPS: Sharing Project Info with the Enterprise
A summary of the most recent GIS in Transportation webcast is now available here. Lynsee Gibson of the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) discuss SCDOT's project management and programming system, P2S, and its eSTIP system (currently in development). Both applications use SCDOT's existing linear referencing system (LRS) to tie project management and funding to geographic locations. The applications allow SCDOT staff to better coordinate project planning and project management, to streamline project planning and automate eSTIP updates, and to reduce the risk of overlapping projects.

Reports on Geospatial Data-Sharing
Three reports explore how State Departments of Transportation (DOTs) and other transportation agencies are developing and using geospatial tools to support increased collaboration and improved information-sharing. These objectives are associated with the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) Geospatial Data Collaboration (GDC) initiative, which encourages State DOTs and others to use geospatial tools to streamline and improve transportation decision-making. The reports are now available online.
FHWA Geospatial Data Collaboration (GDC)
GDC is a new initiative for geospatial data-sharing sponsored by FHWA. The initiative encourages transportation agencies to use geospatial tools to share data, increase collaboration, and improve the quality and speed of transportation decision-making.
