GIS Webcast: Applications of Geospatial Technologies to Transportation
Presenters: Mark Sarmiento of FHWA and Andrew Reovan of The Volpe Center
A summary of a recent GIS in Transportation webcast is now available here. The 29th webcast in a quarterly series of Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) webcasts was presented by Mark Sarmiento of FHWA and Andrew Reovan of the US DOT Volpe Center. The webcast focused on how State DOTs are developing programs around Transportation Performance Management (TPM), particularly as they prepare for requirements introduced by the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) legislation. The presentation summarized the findings from interviews with four State DOTs and a series of case studies focusing on their experiences.
