RES2016-23: GIS Legacy Database (Phase III)

A considerable amount of spatial information characterizing transportation infrastructure and operations in Tennessee is becoming available through the improved capabilities of geographic information system (GIS) technologies. However, much of this information resides in disparate locations, has yet to be fully catalogued and incorporated into a centralized access platform, and/or is being managed by different organizations or divisions within Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT). The purpose of this project is to research and assemble enhanced GIS databases for use by certain TDOT divisions, develop the information to support system functionality, and utilize emerging technologies to expand and enhance the quality of data available to support TDOT’s activities. The project is being performed as a collaborative effort involving researchers from Vanderbilt University and Middle Tennessee State University.
