Over the past year, the GIS Management and Inventory Management Branches have been implementing a new system to manage and maintain the Agency’s roadway data. This system is called ESRI’s Roads & Highways. With this new system comes some changes in the way roads are identified, how to access the data, having more data available (All Ramps and Frontage Roads), and more granularity between each data item.
All roads in Oklahoma now conform to a unified Route ID system which makes data and route locations easier to locate and review. All the current Control Section IDs still remain intact so that all current and historical information can be tied together with no problems. The only change to those is they are now padded with zeros to allow for more Control Section numbers. The current Subsection system is being replaced with a Route ID and Measures system. This also provides more granularity in data retrieval and project planning.
We will cover the following topics in the main presentations:
· New Route IDs
· Where is the data located?
· New Web Map to select a point and get Route ID and Measure
· What is a Ramp or Frontage Road?
· Answering all your questions!
