NCHRP 20-07/Task 295 [Completed]

Survey of Existing XML Schemas for Incorporation into TransXML
[ NCHRP 20-07 (Research for AASHTO Standing Committee on Highways) ]

  Project Data
Funds: $50,000
Research Agency: Spy Pond Partners
Principal Investigator: Frances Harrison
Effective Date: 11/4/2011
Completion Date: 12/4/2012

NCHRP Project 20-64, completed in 2006, developed partial TransXML schemas in the areas of surveying/design, construction/materials, bridges, and safety.  At the AASHTO Annual Meeting in October 2009, the Standing Committee on Highway adopted a resolution endorsing TransXML and directing the newly formed Technical Committee on Electronic Engineering Data (TCEED) to expand and develop future schemas for their consideration. 


The primary objective of this research was to identify and prioritize additional XML schemas for adoption in the TransXML framework.  These include both existing XML schemas that could be enhanced or immediately adopted for TransXML, as well as high priority areas where the future development of new XML schemas would be particularly beneficial to DOTs.  The final report has been received and accepted and provided to AASHTO for distribution.  It can also be downloaded here
