    • 3. Why TFTN?
      Goal to build national transportation base layers (roads and other modes) for use by all levels of government
      Parallels and reinforces other current efforts to develop national framework data layers (IFTN)
      Recognizes that we are currently maintaining national highway and road data in different forms for different purposes
      Overlapping transportation datasets vary in scale, format, documentation, and are maintained for different purposes
      Benefits are widely distributed, uses are diverse, costs are unevenly shared
    • 4. Why a Strategic Plan?
      • Establish a compelling vision
      • 5. Define requirements, challenges and opportunities
      • 6. Document progress already made and good ideas, challenge current assumptions
      • 7. Explore implementation issues
      • 8. Evaluate funding requirements and sources
    • Strategic Planning for TFTN Objectives
      The objectives of the project are to
      Research and evaluate the need, scope, requirements, potential benefits and feasibility of TFTN, and
      Involve stakeholders in the information gathering and consensus building process.
    • 9. Key Issues & Questions
      Institutional Readiness
      Purpose and motivation, constraints, roles across different levels
      Best Practices and Current Models
      Coordination and integration, Lessons learned , identify duplication of effort, amplify success
      Content of the TFTN
      Core attributes for road centerlines, core uses, other transportation modes
      Benefits - Who and how, willingness to pay, public goods
    • 10. The Road ahead – Your input matters!
      Examples of tasks designed to get feedback, information include:
      Creation of a Steering Committee
      Conduction of interviews, workshops, meetings, surveys, case studies, etc.
      Identification of what’s working, what’s needed – current practices, requirements, strategies, standards, documentation
      Identification of institutional constraints, capacity, operational authority, motivation, benefits, etc.
    • 11. The Road ahead, cont.
