DESIGN OF AN INFORMATION SYSTEM FOR CONTINUING TRANSPORTATION PLANNING IN THE ALBUQUERQUE METROPOLITAN AREA

The continuing urban transportation planning (UTP) process requires current data upon which to review and revise existing plans. These data are many and varied, and it is impractical on a continuing basis to obtain these data via primary data collection efforts. The major purpose of this study was to investigate, in a real-world environment, the potential for utilizing secondary-source data (primarily from operating files of various governmental agencies) to satisfy the "surveillance" element of the UTP process. Accordingly, the status of the overall Albuquerque Urban-Regional Information System (AURIS) and its various subsystems was reviewed, and recommendations have been made concerning the development of software support systems, concerning the creation or improvement of various primary data files, and concerning the establishment of various surveillance procedures. /FHWA/
