FHWA Webcast: GIS in Transportation

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) will be hosting its free, quarterly webcast on Thursday, November 1 from 2:30 – 3:30 PM ET. This will be the 16th installment in a series of presentations that discusses geospatial technologies and their application throughout transportation. Registration is not necessary.

Background – Cecilio Martinez, Clayton Elkins, and Raymond Maldonado of the San Antonio-Bexar County MPO will discuss their iMap application, which was developed to consolidate the MPO’s transportation-related data into a single mapping application to help address data silos. The application, which began as a simple mechanism to include information on funded transportation projects, has since grown into a large repository of visually displayed data that can be tailored to users’ needs. Data layers available online through iMap include short- and long-range funded projects, several types of jurisdictional boundaries, traffic count data, crash data, transit information, bicycle facilities, and much more. Citizens and agency staff can now use iMap to answer complex transportation questions, and the application is available at www.sametroplan.org/imap/.
