Nsgic annual status_briefing v0.2

  1. 1. Transportation for the NationStrategic Plan Update<br />
  2. 2. Presentation Overview<br />Concept & Project Activities<br />Project Findings to Date<br />Set up the “NSGIC conversation”<br />Starting for last 10 minutes<br />Finishing tonight at 8pm<br />
  3. 3. Background & Impetus<br />2008 NSGIC “Issues Brief” called for creation of TFTN<br />“Geospatial Platform” calls for “geospatial data, services and applications contributed…by authoritative sources”<br />OMB Circular A-16 identifies US-DOT as “lead” for “transportation”<br />US-DOT business requirements for nationwide, “all roads” inventory<br />Bridge inventory<br />Accident reporting<br />
  4. 4. The Concept“Creation and maintenance of high-quality, nationwide transportation data that is in the public domain”<br />An initial focus on street centerlines, eventually multi-modal<br />Nationwide data spanning all states and territories<br />All roads, not just Federally funded roads<br />Achieved by coordinated efforts from multiple levels of govt.<br />Provides a common geometric baseline<br />Data are in the public domain and readily shareable<br />
  5. 5. Strategic Planning Effort<br />Identify and engage the entire stakeholder community<br />All levels of government<br />Private Sector<br />Non-profit and Citizens ( OpenStreetMap, etc.)<br />Define requirements, challenges and opportunities<br />Document progress already made<br />Existing data sets<br />Bet practices<br />New ideas<br />Explore implementation issues<br />Evaluate funding requirements and sources<br />
  6. 6. Stakeholder OutreachPresentations & Workshops<br />Coming Soon:<br />
  7. 7. Stakeholder OutreachInterviews<br /><ul><li>Safety
  8. 8. Highway Performance Management System
  9. 9. Intelligent Transportation Systems
  10. 10. Asset Management
  11. 11. Deputy Director of Rita (TBD)</li></li></ul><li>Findingsfrom Outreach Activities <br />Strong support<br />Identified many activities that would benefit from TFTN<br />Road safety could be a key element<br />“All roads outlook” needed for many US-DOT Safety Initiatives<br />“All roads outlook” needed for emergency response<br />Significant federal funding of safety initiatives<br />“Think Regionally Act Locally”<br />States and counties are looking beyond their borders<br />States and counties as the authoritative data source for their transportation data<br />
  12. 12. A Potential Vision Emerges:Baseline Geometry with “Special Sauce” on top<br />The specifics of what is included in “baseline geometry” requires further definition<br /><ul><li>Potential Baseline Options</li></ul>HPMS<br />Commercial road data <br />TIGER<br />Volunteered Geographic Information<br />Potential minimal components might be:<br />Road naming<br />Basic attributes (e.g. functional classification)<br />Persistent segment ID numbering<br /><ul><li>Seeking additional ideas and input from stakeholders on what’s feasible</li></li></ul><li>Baseline Geometry “Special Sauce” content is added by individual stakeholders<br />Nationwide Roads Inventory<br />“HPMS roads” are a sub-set<br />Bridges “special sauce”<br />Accidents “special sauce”<br />
  13. 13. “Special sauce” can be content and/or capabilities<br />Additional potential components:<br /><ul><li>Address ranges/geocoding
  14. 14. Advanced attributes (e.g. width, lanes)
  15. 15. Full routability(e.g. speeds, turn restrictions, etc.)
  16. 16. Enhanced cartographic display (e.g. annotation, symbolization, etc.)
  17. 17. Linear Referencing Systems (LRS)
  18. 18. Integration with photo/imagery catalogs</li></li></ul><li>A Potential Model for TFTNWith US-DOT leadership as prescribed by Circular A-16<br />Current FHWA “reporting requirements” for the Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS) are expanded to include submission of a comprehensive statewide road inventory<br />
  19. 19. How would an HPMS requirement work?<br />Detailed “HPMS attributes” are compiled on a subset of a statewide road inventory<br />Annual HPMS reporting provides a data update mechanism<br />US-DOT works with states to develop basic standards<br />Enables states to utilize FHWA funding for creation and maintenance of inventory<br />States develop their own plans and data management strategies for meeting these requirements<br />US-DOT facilitates information exchange on state “best practices”<br />
  20. 20. Challenges & Obstacles with the HPMS Model<br />US-DOT solely responsible for any changes to the HPMS reporting requirements to include all roads<br />They need to be convinced<br />No US-DOT resources currently available for aggregation, assembly and publication of nationwide data set<br />HPMS has a state by state outlook<br />States are not required to work with neighbors for connectivity<br />The level of quality, accuracy and readiness varies from State to State<br />
  21. 21. Lessons LearnedState Best Practices for creating Statewide Road Inventories<br />Activate local government partners<br />Provide funding and technical support<br />State collects and aggregates into statewide data<br />Involvement with emergency support community<br />Examples include: AR and OH<br />Public-Private partnership<br />Contracting for creation & maintenance of statewide inventory<br />Mechanism for posting update requests<br />State obtains licensed data<br />Examples include: NY and MA<br />
  22. 22. Potential Benefits of TFTNDifferent benefits to different groups of stakeholders<br />
  23. 23. Potential Benefits of TFTNDifferent benefits to different groups of stakeholders<br />Core business benefits to the US-DOT<br />HPMS in the context of complete transportation data<br />Highway Safety - nationwide accident mapping<br />All roads for Bridge inventory efforts<br />Benefits to “sister” federal agencies<br />Reduces costs from redundant nationwide data sets<br />Provides public domain data for sharing with partners<br />Collaboration and synergy with other significant mapping programs at USGS and US Census<br />
  24. 24. Potential Benefits of TFTNDifferent benefits to different groups of stakeholders<br />Benefits to State and Local Govt. <br />Potentially opens up DOT resources for statewide road inventories<br />Streamlined requests for data<br />Provides public domain data <br />Facilitates sharing with partners<br />Better data – particularly for rural areas – for GPS-based navigation <br />Easier cross border/multi-jurisdiction coordination and collaboration<br />Benefits to the General Public<br />Consistent data across agencies to support citizen services<br />Publically accessible data for citizen and commercial innovation<br />
  25. 25. What have we heard so far about the HPMS oriented scenario?<br />
  26. 26. At the ESRI User Conference<br />Short-term and long-term considerations<br />Short term: don’t forget several nationwide datasets currently exist<br />TIGER<br />Commercial<br />OpenStreetMap<br />Longer term: design and build something new<br />HPMS is not resourced to make a seamless nationwide data set<br />Multiple “process” models should be evaluated:<br />Public/private partnership<br />Build on TIGER<br />Build on HPMS<br />Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI)<br />Something “outside-the-box” that we have yet to imagine<br />
  27. 27. Census Bureau Interview Takeaways<br />TIGER is a mature product<br />Many users depend on it for a variety of applications <br />National broadband mapping (for Census geometry)<br />Significant improvements in latest TIGER files<br />Positional accuracy improved (7.6 meter)<br />Substantial input from local sources<br />Product contains fidelity to source materials that were provided<br />E.g., if source shows dual-carriageways, so does TIGER<br />Planning for more frequent update<br />Based on population and growth considerations<br />Plans are pending on budget<br />
  28. 28. USGS Interview Takeaways<br />Requirement for nationwide roads in The National Map (TNM)<br />TIGER did not meet TNM requirements<br />Positional accuracy<br />Depictions of interchanges and dual-carriageways<br />Attributes<br />Costs to retrofit TIGER were prohibitive<br />Have currently replaced TIGER with TeleAtlas data<br />Competitive price<br />But, restricted use<br />Looking at OpenStreetMap and other alternatives, long-term<br />The National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) provides a positive example of Federal-State collaboration<br />
  29. 29. Questions for DiscussionRight now, and for tonight<br />Benefits of TFTN to states<br />Why is this on NSGIC’s advocacy agenda?<br />Relationship between state DOTs and state GIS Coordination programs<br />Spectrum of cooperation and collaboration<br />Best practices where collaboration is high<br />NSGIC perspective on roles of federal agencies<br />Who are producers? Who are consumers?<br />Who works well with states?<br />
