Appendix – Annual Meeting Sessions: ABJ20 - Statewide Transportation Data and Information Systems Paper or Conference Sessions 671 (TPS06-014) Wednesday, January 25, 2006, 10:15am-12:00pm, Hilton, Monroe West Data Stewardship: Tools of the Trade James P. Hall, University of Illinois, presiding Sponsored by Committee on Statewide Transportation Data and Information Systems; Committee on National Transportation Data Requirements and Programs; Committee on Urban Transportation Data and Information Systems; Committee on Transportation Asset Management Transportation agencies are moving toward enterprise data warehouse architectures and geographic information systems solutions to meet fact-based decision-making needs. Enterprise data and knowledge management--that is, data stewardship--is becoming increasingly important to address the wide range of multimodal data from disparate sources. The benefits of data stewardship are clear: better data quality, improved communication and common understanding, and reduced data collection costs. However, there are significant organizational, technical, and resource issues that face transportation organizations in fulfilling their data stewardship functions. This session presents current activities in data stewardship functions. Urban Metadata (P06-0087) Catherine Theresa Lawson, State University of New York, Albany Metadata Tools (P06-0088) Frances D.

Lomax, Texas Transportation Institute, presiding Sponsored by Committee on Statewide Transportation Data and Information Systems; Committee on Transportation Asset Management; Committee on Performance Measurement Performance-based planning, asset management, and data management continue to be critical components of planning and operations in transportation agencies. Partnering between state and local agencies in these endeavors is becoming more prominent. Several states have developed geographic information systems, modeling, and other data manipulation tools that support local agencies as well as statewide planning and operations. Some of these tools were put in place because of legislation, whereas others were requested by local agencies. Local agencies, likewise, have developed tools and practices to provide better information for local and state purposes. This poster session features state or locally developed tools to assist in effective state and local decision making.

Stickel, Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities, presiding Sponsored by Committee on Statewide Transportation Data and Information Systems; Committee on Spatial Data and Information Science; Committee on Transportation Asset Management; Committee on National Transportation Data Requirements and Programs; Committee on Urban Transportation Data and Information Systems Transportation agencies are moving toward enterprise data warehouse architectures and geographic information systems solutions to meet fact-based decision-making needs. Enterprise data and knowledge management--data stewardship--is becoming increasingly important to address the wide range of multimodal data from disparate sources. The benefits of data stewardship are clear: better data quality, improved communication and common understanding, and reduced data collection costs. However, there are significant organizational, technical, and resource issues that face transportation organizations in fulfilling their data stewardship functions. This workshop explores data stewardship governance committee roles and approaches, which include return-on-investment analysis to confirm and refine often subjective estimates, organizational responsibility and structure, expansion of data and data use requirements that may strain resources for both personnel and hardware/software. A companion session will present current activities in data stewardship functions as it relates to organizational structures and evolving data management tools and technologies.

Published Meetings ABJ20 (TPM06-009) Tuesday, January 24, 2006, 8:00am-12:00pm, Hilton, Georgetown East ABJ20 Anita Vandervalk, Cambridge Systematics, Inc., presiding Sponsored by Committee on Statewide Transportation Data and Information Systems Full Committee ABJ20 Cosponsored Sessions (only editable by the primary committee sponsor) RCW06-006 Sunday, January 22, 2006, 1:30pm- 5:00pm, Hilton, Monroe West Sharing Data on Transportation System Operations: Benefits and Barriers Robert M. Winick, Motion Maps, LLC, presiding Sponsored by Committee on Regional Transportation Systems Management and Operations; Committee on National Transportation Data Requirements and Programs; Committee on Statewide Transportation Data and Information Systems Data related to how transportation systems operate are an important common concern among many TRB committees as well as various public and private transportation operating organizations and groups. Although the sharing of operational data on how transportation systems operate can provide individual and common benefits, there can also be technical and institutional barriers affecting the ability to do so. Yet the seeking of the benefits of such data sharing may also be affecting the interrelationships among various types of organizations and groups, which may lessen such technical and institutional barriers. This workshop will (a) identify common and reinforcing data needs, requirements, and interrelationships regarding sharing data on transportation system operations; (b) hear the perspectives of two panels of different types of organizations and groups, one panel focused on the benefits and the other panel on barriers to the strengthening of such interrelationships; and (c) together discuss solutions, strategies, and actions for improved data sharing and interrelationships among the organizations and groups or research needs. The following outcomes are expected: strengthening of the effective sharing of operational data among concerned organizations and groups, better understanding of the traditional and evolving interrelationships among such concerned organizations and groups, and facilitation of their interdependence over time where and when that seems mutually beneficial. TPS06-008 Tuesday, January 24, 2006, 10:15am-12:00pm, Hilton, Hemisphere Travel Data Users Forum Ed Christopher, Federal Highway Administration, presiding Sponsored by Committee on National Transportation Data Requirements and Programs; Data and Information Systems - Section; Committee on Urban Transportation Data and Information Systems; Committee on Statewide Transportation Data and Information Systems The Travel Data Users Forum is designed to provide a venue for the presentation and discussion of important or emerging issues regarding passenger travel data. The forum will be broken into two parts. First, the latest report on Commuting in America will be rolled out as we celebrate this comprehensive report on how and why we travel. Then the discussion will shift as we explore the current state of our national data programs that face an uncertain future. This discussion will include the National Personal Household Travel Survey, American Community Survey, Longitudinal Household Dynamic Program, and what the future holds.
