LA Metro Presents on their Regional Integration of Intelligent Transportation Systems (RIITS) and the use of Waze data
The Connected Citizens free data exchange program from Waze is connecting citizens and government through data. The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), serving the Los Angeles County metropolitan area and parts of adjacent counties, is the region’s largest transportation agency and administrator of the Regional Integration of Intelligent Transportation Systems (RIITS). As the administrator of RIITS, Metro follows the National Intelligent Transportation Systems architecture to develop, integrate, store, exchange, manage, host, operate, maintain and expand the collection, distribution and use of transportation and related data. Waze is an excellent resource using familiar GIS methods to exchange near real-time incident data. This workshop will explain the communications, transportation, and institutional architecture existing in Southern California to develop and implement the potential uses of Waze.
Summary of Capability Maturity Model Peer Exchange
Date of event: September 20-21, 2016
CMM Peer Exchange
A summary is now available of the Capability Maturity Model (CMM) peer exchange that took place in September of 2016 in Nashville, TN.
The exchange was held as part of the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in Transportation program1 and was hosted by the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT). The purpose of the exchange was to highlight the role that organizational assessments can play in developing a comprehensive GIS strategy, by sharing experiences between State DOTs that have undergone organizational assessments and State DOTs that have limited experience with, or have not undergone, an assessment.
This edition of the quarterly newsletter features an article about the Ohio Valley Regional Development Commission’s Open Map Portal Initiative. The initiative is a web-based application that highlights a wide range of transportation data in the Ohio Valley region.
Uses of GIS for Transportation Performance Management: Case Studies of Select Transportation Agencies
TPM Case Study Report Now Available
SHA’s MAP-21 Dashboard
To explore how State DOTs are developing programs around TPM, particularly as they prepare for requirements introduced by the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) legislation, FHWA and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Volpe National Transportation Systems Center interviewed four State DOTs and developed a series of case studies focusing on their experiences.
This report supports GIS practitioners and decision-makers by identifying examples of noteworthy practices, considering the advantages and disadvantages of different approaches in using GIS solutions for TPM and related efforts, and determining how to best use GIS to communicate the impacts of performance-based operations and planning at the State DOT level.
