Quality and Accuracy of Positional Data in Transportation

The objectives of this research are to: (1) identify the positional- data quality needs for common transportation applications; (2) document the effectiveness of various techniques for establishing spatial positions; (3) develop methodologies for assessing the impacts of positional-data accuracy in transformations between measurement techniques and spatial referencing systems; and (4) package the findings into materials that can be readily implemented by DOT personnel.
