Title:  (SR500) NHI Innovations:Geospatial Data Collaboration in Practice
Date/Time:  11/6/2013 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM Eastern Time
Description:  Geospatial Data Collaboration (GDC) encourages transportation agencies to use geospatial tools, like geographic information systems (GIS), to share data, increase collaboration, and improve the quality and speed of transportation decision-making. GDC is one element of FHWA's Every Day Counts (EDC) initiative, which is aimed at producing innovations, resources, and partnerships to shorten project delivery, enhance safety, and protect the environment. EDC and GDC also leverage other ongoing FHWA efforts such as Planning and Environment Linkages (PEL) and Eco-Logical. Taken together, all of these efforts are helping transportation stakeholders work together and with others to result in smarter, faster decision-making and better transportation projects. GDC focuses on how transportation agencies are pulling transportation-related datasets together and using them in GIS-based screening tools to help them make decisions efficiently. GDC is also focused on how transportation agencies and their partners work with each other to make these data libraries and screening tools happen. This session will detail examples of GDC from the Pennsylvania DOT with their Proposal Screening Tool and the Idaho Transportation Department with IPLAN. Moderator: Mark Sarmiento, GIS Planning Analyst, Office of Planning, FHWA Speakers: Frank DeSendi, Geographic Information Division Manager, Pennsylvania DOT Erika Bowen, Planning / Program Management Manager, Idaho Transportation Department
