GIS-T Workshop - Routable Network Data Model (2022)
1:30 PM - 4:00 PM
GIS-T Workshop - Integrating data from multiple sources for building an open-standards compliant, topologically connected, Routable Network Data Model (2022)
The Applications of Enterprise GIS in Transportation (AEGIST) pooled fund study (PFS) was initiated by FHWA in 2018 and involves 18 participating/engaged States and 5 friend States. As part of this phase, one of the areas PFS States are looking at development of a geospatial Road Network Data Model, that is (A) based on open standards such as ARNOLD, HPMS, MIRE, General Modeling Network Specification (GMNS), NG911, USRS, OGC’s Geographic Data Format (GDF) and CityGML, and, buildingSMART Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) which has recently been adopted by AASHTO; (B) Supports the planning and analysis required to build Complete Streets by mining, integrating and engineering geospatial and attribute data with required level of detail (LOD) and level of information (LOI) from Linear Referencing System (LRS) models, Design CAD/BIM models, Open Street Maps (OSM), Video logs, Imagery, NG911 and local agency datasets; and, (C) Enables data-driven decision support systems to conduct the data analysis required to carry out the equity actions laid out in the USDOTs Transportation Equity action plan by building a geospatial data model with data that supports spatial safety, mobility and infrastructure performance analysis. This workshop will involve presentations, interactive discussions and surveys associated with building the Road Network Data Model that accomplishes the above objectives. A Road Network Data Model that is being built as part of the AEGIST PFS will be presented. Additionally, road network data model development best practices/pilots at agencies that utilize various data sources will be discussed, so that feasibility and desirability of implementation of such model development practices can be assessed.
Abhishek Bhargava is a data scientist with over 15 years of experience working with 35+ agencies in the US across sectors. He develops statistical and artificial intelligence data models with spatial data. For this he is creating machine readable data models in the transportation space. He has developed over a 100 FHWA reports, journal articles, State and National presentations/workshops/webinars on Data Science and Engineering, Building Information Modeling (BIM), Data Governance, Data Management Systems, Data and Applications Architecture standards. He worked with AASHTO to develop the data integration framework for integrating AASHTOWare with other enterprise systems. He has authored a BIM National Strategic Roadmap and built a Data Governance System for BIM.
William (Bill) Schuman is the Vice President of Rizing Geospatial. His primary responsibilities include overseeing product development efforts, company operations, and company strategic direction. In addition, he provides subject matter expertise for road inventory, asset management, linear referencing systems (LRS) and road data models, and spatial data management. He has over 32 years of public and private sector transportation and GIS experience. He is a recognized LRS and transportation data expert and has worked with state and local governments on GIS strategic plans, spatially enabled database and data warehousing projects, LRS design and implementation projects, and custom data maintenance and data visualization applications.
Andréa Compton is a Senior GIS Analyst for Rizing Geospatial and is responsible for providing LRS and GIS subject matter expertise and technical support for transportation projects. She has twelve years of experience using ArcGIS and is one of Rizing Geospatial’s Esri Roads and Highways technical experts. She has worked with a variety of transportation agencies on LRS implementations, HPMS processing, and custom tools. Her experience at Indiana DOT provided her an opportunity to have hands-on experience with updating LRS data in the Bentley Exor software environment.
Marc Kratzschmar is a Senior Product Manager Bentley Systems where he supports teams designing highway asset management systems. He has led the design and implementation of enterprise systems for highway agencies at county, state and country level governments throughout the world. He has also been responsible for the development of new products in the areas of PMS software interfaces, traffic data management and GIS, always underpinned by linear referencing. Before that he worked for Esri as a consultant and project manager. At Esri he was responsible for designing and implementing highway asset management systems with GIS technology.
Ian Howell is Chair of the buildingSMART US Chapter. In the US, Ian is leading buildingSMART’s coordination efforts with AASHTO, FHWA, FRA and other National agencies to deploy data standards for data modeling and exchange.
