Project Description/Abstract

This research project will result in a web-based survey of the use of geo-spatial information systems in transit planning and operations in the United States for 2005. It will update two previous surveys conducted by the GeoGraphics Laboratory for the Federal Transit Adminstration in 2002 and 2003. It will determine the continuation of emerging trends in GIS applications in Federal regulatory and program initiatives in welfare to work, civil rights compliances, and human serviced transportation coordination. It will also review emerging trends in transit GIS use to include the integration of remot sensing, global positioning system, and applications of GIS for transportation infrastructure and operations security. The web-based survey project will use the latest hadware and software provided by the Microsoft Research TerraServer. NET award to the GeoGraphics Laboratory.
