Use of “Big Data” and Automated Valuation Models to expedite Right-of-Way Acquisition processes within the Federal-aid program across the nation

The purpose of this research is to compare traditional valuations / appraisals prepared for two completed State DOT right-of-way acquisition projects in each of three states (Georgia, North Carolina, and Ohio) against the selected automated valuation models (AVMs) valuations of those same properties. The valuations will include estimates for the whole property, and the land unit value conclusions. This research project will result in a report that will inform Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and its partners / stakeholder agencies about how the use of AVMs may be applicable and appropriate for Federal-aid highway program use.
