Development of a Transportation Data Center

As a result of the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA) and various state laws and regulations, the data needs of the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) are changing to reflect the increase in intermodal policy and planning work required by the WSDOT. This report describes alternative approaches to obtaining and internally managing the data needed to meet these requirements. Specifically, it explores the utility, functionality, and organizational structure of a transportation data center within the Department.
