Increasingly, DOTs are publishing what has historically been “back room” data on the web, thereby making it accessible to a variety of users, departments, and even citizens (or, especially citizens!). “Back room technology” has included CADD, desktop GIS, and transactional RDBMS systems. With this challenge, interoperability tools and processes are needed to effectively migrate data from different sources and formats into an integrated and highly-scalable, web-based environment. As such, it is important to develop sustainable and repeatable data management workflows that ensure efficient and complete data lifecycles that can be publication optimized to make those data available and accessible to non-technical audiences both within, and outside of the DOT.

This talk will focus on the development process for the Google-powered DriveTexas web-site modernization. DriveTexas is the public-facing traveler information application for Texas and was successfully stress-tested under a simulated load of 100,000 concurrent users in order to support the use case of a Gulf Coast hurricane that threatened Galveston and Houston.

Presenters: Rich Grady and Michael Terner, President and Exec. Vice President of AppGeo.
AppGeo supports a variety of technology platforms of interest to the Transportation community, and has strong experience with many of the pressing technology issues DOTs face, such as traveler information systems, rights-of-way (ROW) data management, linear referencing systems (LRS), and CADD-GIS interoperability. In addition to direct projects for State DOTs, USDOT, Regional Planning Organizations, and Local Government DPWs, AppGeo has worked in many other geospatial arenas that interact with the DOT community such as local government and state environmental agencies.
