    • GIS-T “Lightning Talk” on TFTN Melanie Rippon Seigler
    • 1. What does TFTN mean to me? • How would I define TFTN? – A federal, state, regional and local collaborative effort to build and maintain a quality, accurate and timely transportation network for the nation. • Are road centerlines a good place to start? – Yes - Centerlines, are a good place to start. This will give the basis for routable network. • Should it include all roads? – Yes – all roads • What else? – Rail lines and yards, Airports, Maritime Ports – Mass Transit, Commuter lines, Bike/Walk trails, SLUG
    • 2. What is role of various levels of government? • What role should the Federal Government take in TFTN? – Coordinate the development of standards and best practices – Provide technical and process tools for implementing standard – Provide support and funding to state, regional and locals • What role should State Government take in TFTN? – Participate in developing standards and best practices – Provide education and technical support – Provide funding to regional and local government to implement – Educate state, regional and local decision makers on the program • What role should Local Government take in TFTN? – Participate in developing standards and best practices – Educate regional and local decision makers on the program – Implement standards and best practices
    • 3. What is the role of other stakeholders? • Is there a role for the private sector? – Provide lessons learned. • Is there a role for the public-at-large? – Provide feedback on data quality and usability • Are there other important stakeholders that we should reach out to? – Multi-modal transportation partners
    • 4. What is the availability of data? • Does adequate road geometry exist? – In Virginia – YES! – State GIS Coordination of road centerline development, up from the local in most cases. – State provides high resolution aerial photography to all local government • What attributes make sense? • Is the data in the public domain?
    • 5. What existing programs might play a role in data provisioning, and how so? • Does the Highway Performance Measurement System (HPMS) play a part? – Yes – better road network will lead to better HPMS reporting, and more funding for states. Could be a carrot to state/regional/local participation • Do efforts related to emergency numbering (e9ll) play a part? – Yes- a better road network will provide a better basis for e911 numbering and emergency response. • Do efforts related to census-taking play a part? – Census population figures can help to prioritize the collection and quality standard. • Do efforts related to “The National Map” play a part? – Better data for the national map!
    • Next! • Hand it over to the next panelist • Be ready to answer questions when other speakers are done
