Please join the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) for its 19th installment in a quarterly series of webcasts highlighting applications of geospatial technologies in transportation.
The webcast will take place on Thursday, August 22nd, from 1-2 PM (ET).
Gwen Ford of the City of High Point, NC, will discuss the development of the city’s sign inventory and management tools. Tasked with complying with recent FHWA traffic sign retroreflectivity requirements, the City of High Point Transportation Department developed an internet-based inventory of existing traffic signs using ArcGIS API for Flex. Using aerials and collecting on-the-ground information, the department cataloged the signs and were able to quickly and efficiently upgrade outdated signs. In order to manage the signs after replacement, the department began using an internet-based application by Design Info Tech called TEAMS. TEAMS is both cost-effective and robust, and allows the department to maintain the sign inventory, dispatch work orders, produce reimbursement reports, and more. The TEAMS interface is friendly enough to accommodate a wide range of users, and streamlines work for office staff, work crew, management, and supervisors.
