Software Tools for Sharing and Integrating GIS Data

The goal of the consortium is to develop, implement and distribute a variety of tools and process for sharing and integrating geo-spatial transportation data. The basic objectives are to: (1) design and implementation of a core database, based on federal standards, within the state as a central repository of multi-jurisdictional location data; (2) translation of the data from provider's schema to a centralized database and from one database to another; (3) development of Internet portals for data providers to submit data and data users to download data and security to support data access; (4) integration of data from disparate data sources into a seamless whole; (5) quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) processes and software to monitor data quality, security, data entry and retrieval processes; (6) change detection, and change management to support maintenance of the data over time; (7) documentation of a set of processes necessary to support data sharing from a variety of sources, e.g. data sharing agreements, agreement points; (8) linear referencing integration. The initial timeline for this development is three to four years depending on funding. Annual consortium meetings and electronic communication are used to coordinate project activities. The timeline of the project and is updated based on current status and dependent upon available resources.
