Noteworthy Practices and Innovative Uses

Interactive Maps describe project listings of Statewide and Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Programs, project location maps, photographs, narrative description of project objectives, contact information and much more. Several states such as Kansas, Washington, and North Carolina are currently using interactive maps to provide STIP project instantly. Denver Regional Council of Government provides maps, images and project information.

Maps, charts, illustrations and graphics, diagrams, sketches, images, and photographs make Long Range Transportation Plans easier to read, as shown in Housatonic Valley Council of Elected Officials' Regional Transportation Plan, Central Arkansas Transportation Study's Plans and San Francisco's MTC 2030 Plan.

Policy plans can be illustrated using images, maps, flow charts, charts, illustrations, scenarios and graphics such as Envision Utah, Northeastern Illinois Planning Commission's 2040, or Envision Central Texas.
