Transportation agencies have increased data needs for informed decisions involving resource allocation; project development, selection, and design; highway safety; risk assessment; and roadway network performance. In addition, there are new spatial delivery capabilities for data sharing, collaborating, planning, and communicating. Information about the data--metadata--is often not complete or is missing. This session focuses on best practices for delivering metadata to CEOs.

Today’s transportation organizations depend on fast and easy access to subject matter experts and good information for decision making. The diversity of topics addressed within the transportation sector and the interdisciplinary nature of the work result in a complex network of data and information needed and produced. It is challenging to manage quick access to experts and information across this diverse landscape. The KM field provides methodologies and tools to help address this need.
