GIS Open Data Case Studies of Select Transportation Agencies

In supporting State Departments of Transportation (DOTs) and metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) in using geographic information systems, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is publishing this case study report focusing on the creation and use of open data applications by transportation agencies. To gather information for this report, the U.S. DOT Volpe National Transportation Systems Center interviewed two State DOTs and two MPOs, and developed a case study focusing on their experiences. The agencies profiled were: New York State DOT, Mississippi DOT, Wilmington MPO, and North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority. The purpose of this document is for State DOTs and MPOs to consider the approach that these agencies have used in employing open data to enhance public access to transportation information and learn best practices from peer agencies.
