A GIS Prototype Application for Monitoring Washington State Transportation Planning Studies

Description: The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) assists regional and local jurisdictions with planning studies. A geographic information system (GIS) application has been developed to provide easy access to the location, type, and cost of regional transportation planning studies state-wide across all jurisdictions. The prototype application will provide information to regional transportation planners so that more effective intra- and inter-jurisdictional decisions can be made regarding new studies. A series of statements representative of the kinds of information that would benefit planners was developed as the basis for the database design. Multi-scales of representation were used. The existing WSDOT GIS environment was employed as the development environment.
