Why TFTN? 3 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
Strategic Planning for TFTN Objectives 5 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.
Key Issues & Questions 6 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
The Road ahead – Your input matters! 7 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.
The Road ahead, cont. 8 Define goals, objectives for TFTN Set the stage for business plan and cost benefits analysis Answer the Question: What is TFTN?
