|Innovation||Geospatial Data Collaboration (GDC)|
|Award Fiscal Year||2014|
The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) will plan and implement K-Hub as the beginning of a linear referencing management system that can be used in a collaborative environment with internal and external transportation data stakeholders. This project utilizes technology to integrate roadway data from best available sources into a singular, authoritative, and innovative transportation geospatial data system that meets the needs of Kansas. KDOT's plan is to approach the K-Hub project with geospatial data collaboration principles, ultimately with a goal of having one singular roadway data geometry and information system for Kansas. Another goal of the K-Hub system is to make the linear referencing system routes available for county, Next Generation 911, and local reference, so those stakeholders can leverage the routes to reference local roadway data.
With the increased emphasis on being data driven in all aspects of the program, particular safety, the proposal will advance the state-of-the-art in this regard. The ability to provide reliable, timely, and integrated data to cover the needs of various partners will benefit all. The efficiencies in developing, operating, and maintaining the road centerline geospatial data collaboration should result in a best practice.
