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 regionís 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.
