Author(s): Dawn Bisplinghoff, Allen Ibaugh
Recently, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has undertaken several initiatives to automate many internal business functions. These functions include such elements as (1) development of regional impact review, (2) mitigation, (3) work program development and review, and (4) level of service analysis. Recognizing the booming information technology market, FDOT has initiated programs with the underlying objective of automating transportation planning and policy procedures to reach a goal of a more efficient and effective planning process. Information technology tools, such as Web-based geographic information systems (ArcIMS), relational database management systems, and Web-based delivery mechanisms, are either currently being utilized in the automation effort or plan to be in the near future. This paper will review these current initiatives and discuss their foreseen outcomes as well as future potential information technology prospects.
