FHWA Webinar on Using GIS for Local Agency Data Collection
FHWA will host a webinar on Wednesday, March 25 from 1:00 – 2:00pm ET focused on Massachusetts DOT (MassDOT) efforts to collect data from local agencies using GIS. In this webinar, MassDOT will share their efforts to improve data collection across multiple programs through implementing a single workflow (Local Aid Grant Workflow). Built on the same platform used to submit federal-aid projects, the Local Aid Grant Workflow allows MassDOT to apply the same location intelligence model to simplify and integrate the many applications.
This webinar will also review the MassDOT Road Inventory Submission Application (RISA). RISA provides a web-based mapping interface for the municipal authorities to interactively add, update, and review its roadways in the Roads and Highways Database in a multi-user collaborative environment.
Register for the webinar here.
