THE HIGHWAY NETWORK DATA AND INFORMATION SYSTEM

THE HIGHWAY NETWORK DATA AND INFORMATION SYSTEM (HNDI) SUPPORTS THE TRANSPORTATION PLANNING PROCESS, A MAJOR FUNCTION OF THE WISCONSIN DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION. ALTHOUGH THE SYSTEM IS A PRINCIPAL TOOL IN THE PLANNING PROCESS, IT WAS DESIGNED TO INTERFACE WITH THE PROJECT DEVELOPMENT AND PROGRAM BUDGET SYSTEMS. HNDI PROVIDES THE CAPABILITY FOR EFFICIENTLY COLLECTING, PROCESSING, STORING, AND DISPLAYING HIGHWAY-RELATED DATA AND INFORMATION FOR ALL PUBLIC ROADS IN WISCONSIN, IN THE FUTURE IT WILL BE EXPANDED TO INTEGRATE ALL MODES OF TRANSPORTATION. THE NUMEROUS INDIVIDUAL DATA FILES OF THE TOTAL INFORMATION SYSTEM ARE COORDINATED THROUGH A COMMON INDEXING SCHEME. THE MAINTENANCE OF THE CONTROL INDEXES AND THE DATA FILES IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THOSE UNITS OF THE ORGANIZATION WHOSE FUNCTION RELATES MOST CLOSELY TO THE DATA BEING FILED. THE INDEXES, THEIR FILE LOCATION, DATA VALIDITY, TIMELINESS, AND UNIFORM DATA DEFINITIONS ARE A PART OF THE SYSTEMS OPERATING PROCEDURES FOR THE DATA SETS AVAILABLE TO USERS OF DATA AND INFORMATION. USERS OF THE SYSTEM WILL BE ABLE TO ASSEMBLE AND RELATE DATA FROM WITHIN HNDI FROM OTHER DEPARTMENT SYSTEMS AND FORMAT THE INFORMATION ACCORDING TO THEIR INDIVIDUAL NEEDS. THE DISPLAY OF THIS INFORMATION IN A GRAFPHIC FORMAT WILL GIVE STAFF AND MANAGEMENT A CLEAR AND CONCISE PICTURE OF PERTINENT INFORMATION FOR AN EFFICIENT ANALYSIS OF HIGHWAY PLANNING PROBLEMS. /AUTHOR/
