NCHRP 08-55A [Completed]

Developing a Logical Model for a Geo-Spatial Right-Of-Way Land Management System

  Project Data
Funds: $350,000
Research Agency: Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University
Principal Investigator: Kathleen Hancock
Effective Date: 10/3/2007
Completion Date: 2/28/2011
Comments: The final report is available as NCHRP Report 695 and CD-ROM 99.

The objectives of this project were to (1) develop an enterprise-level logical model for a prototypical geo-spatial enabled, ROW land management system for state departments of transportation, (2) demonstrate a crosswalk between the logical model and DOT enterprise systems now in use to determine the gap between the state-of-the-art system and existing systems, and (3) deliver a presentation-ready executive summary in print and electronic formats that demonstrates the usefulness and validity of the logical model.

The logical model and an guide for its implementation on an enterprise level are available as NCHRP Report 695 and NCHRP CD-ROM 99. The CD-ROM is available as an ISO image which can be downloaded and burned to a blank CD. (Here is some help on burning an ISO image.)
