Create Central Repository for Transportation Data

The Kenai GIS Transportation Portal project included extensive outreach and information gathering with stakeholders from member agencies of the Kenai Peninsula GIS Users Group, Alaska ArcUser Group, Alaska URISA chapter, as well as through an oral presentation at the Alaska Surveying and Mapping Conference in Anchorage on February 24, 2010 and via the Kenai GIS Transportation Workshop on May 10, 2010. A series of in-person interviews, focus
group sessions and an online transportation data survey were conducted to gather information about available data, work flows and user needs. Digital data and database schemas were transmitted via email and FTP to the project subcontractors. The Kenai GIS Transportation Portal web site has been established at with information about the project including links to standards, presentations and activities. An
online “Road Notes” application was developed to allow remote updates to the central e-911 database. Transportation data sets and web services with associated FGDC metadata and database crosswalking tools, plus a user handbook are also hosted on the transportation portal web site. FGDC metadata records have also been published to the Geospatial OneStop. A grant oversight committee was established and periodic meetings were held throughout the project.
