NCHRP Report 754: Improving Management of Transportation Information

April 2013

NCHRP Report 754: Improving Management of Transportation Information presents 1) a selective review of current practices of state departments of transportation (DOT) and other agencies that collect, store, and use transportation data and information; and 2) guidance on strategies and actions a DOT can implement to improve information capture, preservation, search, retrieval, and governance. The guidance is intended to be sensitive to the diversity of state DOTs; the range of transportation information that DOTs use (related, for example, to project delivery, environmental review, network configuration and design detail, and operations performance); and the variety of formats for transportation information (such as text reports, photographs, plans and drawings, geo-coded databases, and financial analyses).
