2 Background The transportation system includes both physical and nonphysical components related to all modes of travel that allow the movement of goods and people between locations. Lead Agency: US Department of Transportation

3 FGDC Transportation Subcommittee Charter was reestablished in October 2010 Chair: Mark Bradford Co-Chair: Raquel Hunt Partners: Census & USGS Work Plan 2011 & 2012: Intermodal Focused Surveyed the Transportation Community on their requirements for a spatial database of representation of Intermodal Defined the data definitions and data model Challenges: Lack of Resources to update the data

4 FGDC Transportation Subcommittee Charter Facilitation of partnerships and coordination of efforts among stakeholders Transportation networks, terminals, and services (including intermodal freight and passenger); and the movements of people and commodities Transportation includes all traditional transportation modes (roads, railroads, public transit, navigable waterways, and commercial air routes), intermodal connections between these modes, as well as commercial product pipelines. subcommittees/tsc/transportation-sc-charter-20101007.pdf

5 Leadership SAOGI: Patricia Hu – Director/Associate Administrator for BTS, OST-R Executive Champion: Richard McKinney – USDOTs Chief Information Officer (CIO) Theme Lead: Raquel Hunt GIO: Steve Lewis USDOT Geospatial Coordination Council

7 Coordination is the Key to Success Participation on all Coordination Group (CG) meetings and Theme lead meetings January 2014 Updated the CG on the Transportation Theme DOT has representation on the Writing Teams for the A-16 Implementation Plan Provided updates to the responsible parties on the portfolio management actions and timelines Finalized the Strategic Plan for Geospatial Data for Transportation Outreached to the NGDA Dataset Owners

8 NGDA - BTS Registered on Outreached to Stakeholders to Access Needs: BTS Federal, State, Local and Private Intermodal Commodity Routing Commodity Flow Survey Census & BTS Intermodal

9 Business Requirement National Transportation Atlas Database (NTAD) Congressional mandate Originally in the Intermodal Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 Included in each subsequent act Produced and distributed annually since 1995 Contains data from throughout USDOT and from several partner agencies Comprised of transportation networks, transportation facilities, and background layers

10 NDGA - FAA Airports & Runways Registered on Outreached to Stakeholders to Access Needs: Ongoing Revising the current attributes Adding Airport boundaries to the NGDA

11 NGDA - Transit Registered on Outreached to Stakeholders to Access Needs: FTA/BTS Collaboration Local Communities across the Nation GIS-T Participation Livable Communities Ongoing Transit Lines & Stations

12 NGDA - FRA Registered on Outreached to Stakeholders to Access Needs: 2013 GIS Rail Submit GIS-T – State DOTs Association of American Railroads (AAR) Other Modes within DOT National Emergency Number Association (NENA) Ongoing… Dataset(s): Rail Network

13 NGDA - FHWA Registered on Outreached to Stakeholders to Access Needs: Ongoing… NGDA needs to identify these are Highway Bridges only Dataset(s): Bridges
