November Newsletter: Tennessee LiDAR Program Collaboration

State DOT works with other State Offices to fund LiDAR data collection

The Tennessee Department of Finance and Administration and the
Tennessee Department of Transportation collaborated on a recent project to fund collection of LiDAR data. The newsletter is authored by TNDOT and Tennessee state employees, whose dual perspectives on the Tennessee LiDAR Program demonstrate the value of
working across boundaries and reducing duplicated efforts. The newsletter can be found here.

What We Do

The GIS in Transportation program facilitates the knowledge transfer of GIS skills, best practices, and technical resources among State, regional, and local transportation organizations. This website captures the respective lessons learned and makes them available to all GIS practitioners and transportation professionals.

FHWA HEPGIS Application

The HEPGIS website is an interactive, web-based geographic map server that enables users to navigate, view, and print geospatial maps using only their web browser.

Geospatial Data Collaboration

Geospatial Data Collaboration (GDC) is an FHWA Every Day Counts 2 initiative that encourages transportation agencies to use geospatial tools to share data, increase collaboration, and improve the quality and speed of transportation decision-making.
