Lesson Background HTML
The Federal Transit Administration study entitled Best Practices for Using Geographic Data in Transit: A Location Referencing Guidebook: Defining Geographic Locations of Bus Stops, Routes, and other Map Data for ITS, GIS, and Operational Efficiencies contains lessons learned on data management derived from a wide range of sources. Many of the issues and practices were obtained from a series of ten teleconference workshops for the transit industry that were hosted by the Transit Standards Consortium (TSC). The workshop participants included interested parties and invited subject matter experts from transit agencies, counties, metropolitan planning organizations, transit application vendors, GIS software vendors and commercial map database vendors. Additional information came from personal communications as follow-up to the workshops, published literature, and internal documents from transit and county agencies.
