Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) will host a webcast on the topic ‘E- TRIMS’ Spatialy Enabling TDOT’s Enterprise for Decision Support on Tuesday, October 29th, from 2-3 PM ET. The intended audiences for this webcast series are planners and GIS practitioners from State Departments of Transportation, Metropolitan Planning Organizations, FHWA Division Offices, and State and Federal resource agencies.
Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) has a rich history of deploying technology to help manage critical infrastructure facilities. For example, TDOT’s Tennessee Roadway Information Management System (TRIMS) provided tremendous benefit to TDOT by performing complex data maintenance as well as roadway analytics. However, the cost of deploying and maintaining this largescale client/server based application was a big challenge. To address these issues, TDOT decided to create E-TRIMS – a new web-based application with the same analysis capabilities in a modernized format. E-TRIMS provides a customizable map interface with “Road Finder” query capabilities, allowing output on the map or as a tabular report, as well as thematic maps and charts. In addition, E-TRIMS allows users to perform and save any number of queries and change map settings for future use or access by other DOT users. This webcast will address the goals, objectives, challenges and benefits of E-TRIMS to TDOT.
Presenter: Bryan Semore of the (TDOT) will discuss the DOT’s new web-based roadway information management system.
