The Transportation Research Board of the National Academies awarded the National Cooperative Highway Research Program grant to CGIT to prepare and disseminate information about geospatial technologies in the right-of-way (ROW) data management process. The grant enabled CGIT to accomplish three major activities:

  • Performed a literature search and prepare a bibliography of ROW/land management systems;
  • Prepared six case studies using “real-world” examples that demonstrate the return on investment for a diversity of ROW systems;
  • Identified the hundreds of data elements necessary for a geospatial data management system for planning and management, engineering and mapping, property appraisal and acquisition, utility relocation, and corridor preservation as part of ROW functions.
