WVDOH

Current
“As Is”
GIS

State


One
key
goal of the
steps taken (
Enterprise
survey, document research and interviews with
WVDOH

staff
) in the development of this roadmap

was to gather information on the
current

state
of
GIS
operations
.

This section summarizes the current state GIS operations at
WVDOH

into

four architecture categories
:

business, data, application and technical architecture. A
WVDOH

current state concept diagram is also provided which will become the framework for
validating and rectifying the desired target end
-
state.



WVDOH

Current
GIS
A
rchitecture


As
indicate
d
, the current GIS operations at
WVDOH

are summarized into four enterprise
architecture categories.
This includes:




Business Architecture



This

model is the foundation for defining the agency’s divisions
and districts business pr
ocess
es

and delivery of services.

The model is a high
-
level
representation of the vision, mission, goals and objectives that comprise the strategic
business
plan
of the government.




Data Architecture

-

Data architecture
includes
informational

assets and associated sets of
administrative processes executed against these resources such that they can be
effectively leveraged within the application architecture to achieve
b
usiness goals.




Application Architecture
-

The organization of
commercial o
ff the shelf (
COTS
)

and
custom applications/
technical tools to achieve business goals.




Technical Architecture
-

Also referred to as “systems architecture”, this form addresses
the physical computing hardware, network communications, and file storage comp
onents
of enterprise systems.


WVDOH Current “As
-
Is”
State GIS Conceptual Architecture

The following diagram represents a conceptual view of the current
“As
-
Is”
state based on the
findings
of

the
survey

and discussions with the
GTI

team.

2.1

Business Architecture

An
EGIS is comprised of mult iple stakeholders, each of whom has a set of business
requirement s, expectations and constraints that must be considered in putting together an
E
GIS
road map. B
usiness requirement s, servi
ce delivery

as well as the

expectations

and

constraint s
faced by the

stakeholders must be considered in order to make the
technology a success from
both the

technical, organizat ional and business viewpoint.


This section identifies
current and target
stakeholders

with an overview
of their
busines
s
processes

and services.
For each stakeholder, there is an accompanying s
ummary table

with
pertinent information collected during interviews, research and

the
EGIS

survey.

Summary
information

may
include

stakeholder’s
current and target
business process
es and services,
G

, mapping and analysis

products
,

hardware

and software
,

perceived
GIS issues

and
EGIS
data roles.
Data roles are
summarize

below

to
provide
the

reader with an understanding of how
the
data roles

fit

in
to

the
EGIS
.

Data roles must

be assigned to every Division/Sect ion that uses GIS. Data roles should be
assigned at the feature class level. Frequently, data roles are assigned to datasets according to
the application but many different data roles can apply for each feature class. T
hese roles will
include Data Originator
, Data Consumer

and Data
Steward.

For example, GTI may be the
stewards for all data but there may be many Data Originators for each data layer. Data roles are
defined as follows and will be included in all division s
ummaries as applicable.


1.

Data Originator
:

The organization that constructs and/or maintains the data, for example
Maintenance Division/Districts are responsible for asset data. The originator may operate
outside the WVDOT as in the case of regional provi
ders like Metropolitan Planning
Organizations (MPOs) or state agencies like WVDEP.

2.

Data Consumer
:

The WVDOT divisions or external agencies that rely on the data to run
its business and handles organizational commitments.

3.

Data Steward
: The technical team
that is responsible for maintaining and publishing the
data.


Of notable importance is the role of
data steward
. Data stewardship is the process of managing
information necessary to support program and enterprise stakeholders, ensuring that data
captured
and reported is accurate, accessible, timely, and usable for decision making. The
objective of data stewardship policy is to synchronize data collection processes, reduce data
redundancy, and increase data accessibility, availability, and flexibility in a

systematic manner.
Effective data stewardship requires that:


1.

Definitions clearly describe requirements and characteristics of data to be maintained in
systems;


2.

Data be created, recorded, maintained and report
ed in compliance with standards and,


3.

Feedba
ck is provided when data are inadequate to meet user needs


GTI must work with the Divisions/Sections to ensure that roles are assigned and published so the
information is readily accessible and responsibility is clearly defined. This information will
become increasingly important as more editors’ work in the multi
user environment and more
services are published. The road layer is an example where roles will play a significant part.
Many users will consume the data as well as provide important feedback on road updates or
corrections but the data steward role must
ensure that this information is accurate, up
-
to
-
date and
non
-
duplicated.


Business units are discussed in alphabetical order with the exception of GTI. GTI is home to
GIS and therefore must be discussed first.

Mis s ion Statement

West Virginia Department of Transportation
’s

mission
is
to create and maintain a multi
-
modal
and inter
-
modal transportation system that supports the safe, effective and efficient movement of
people, information and goods that enhances the opportunity for p
eople and communities to
enjoy environmentally sensitive and economically sound development

for the people of West
Virginia, the United States and the world
.


WVDOT is comprised of
seven divisions:



Aeronautics



Highways



Motor Vehicles




Office of Administra
tive Hearings



Parkways



Public Post Authority



Public Transit



State Ra
il



GIS can improve the delivery of the many essential services
in transportation, tourism and
economic development

that

WVDOT

Divisions

support
:




Transportation services for public
transit, railway operations and maintenances, airport
and river port development and highway construction and maintenance.



S
afety and protection for
citizens through modern operating standards for
highways, rail
and airport facilities



C
ommunity and economic development through accessible roads, rivers
and airports



Revenue generation

through the highway trust fund; air, railway and waterway fuel funds

and tolls and concession fees



Information and education

through
safety guidance
, travel

information,
and
public
involvement in transportation planning and continuing education

Geospatial Transportation Information (
GTI
)


The
GTI Section

is located

with
in
the
Program Planning

and Administration
Division
.

GTI was
established to d
evelop and support the

EGIS for the
WVDOT
.
In 200
7
, the Program Plann
ing
and Administration Division
was reorganized to combine Highway Data Services (HDS) with
the Roadway Records and Statistics and the
Highway Performance Monitoring
System

(HPMS)
.
These

units were

place
d

under GTI. HDS is responsible for processing

the
update

and maintenance of

the
Roadway Inventor y File.


G
I
S

is responsible for the GIS d
a
ta, applications and
technical
infrastr uct ure
.

GTI has made great strides organizi ng GIS efforts within the agency and understands the
immediat e need to continue to build the enterprise framework
.


With many internal users of the
technology throughout the
DOH

and the potential

f
or hundreds of additional users
, the
agency

must
have and
maintain
EGIS

architectur e capable of supporting the
continued
demands for GIS
data, services and applications
.

The GIS system currently in place
h
as become an important part of
Agency
’s core
Info
rmat ion
Technology (
IT
) infrastructure.
E
GIS will store the geospatial data and integrate of many of the
existing
business systems and
databases
.

Many of these business systems will be integrated with
the WVDOT roadway Linear Referencing System
.


This
integration will allow assets and
projects to be graphically displayed on West Virginia’s transportation network and use all the
benefits of a Geographic Information System (GIS).


Of notable importance

in the technology stack

is the Ent
erprise Resource Pl
anning System (
ERP)
which is currently in the implementation planning stage. This system will
repl
ace more than
seventy
(70
)

of the State’s
aging and redundant administrative systems

a
nd p
rovide seamless
integration
and automation
of the State’s administr
ative business processes within a single
system
.
I
ntegrating the ERP systems with
GIS
provides
more value to
the

Agency’s
business
units
by
allowing them to
visual
ize

spat
ial relationships and
connections and patterns in business
data
. This will
result

in

informed and timely decision
-
making
,
increased efficiency and

make

GIS an integral part of the agency’s
core
information
technology
environment
.


ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE

GIS staff has done a remarkable job of organizing the
limited
resources and
technology to
deliver prior
ity GIS services to the agency.

GTI recentl
y hired a GIS Manager to lead
the

E
GIS

implementation and manage the Section
. One of the first tasks
of the

GIS Manager
was to
redefine the Section’s
EGIS
Vision and Mission Statements

along with the corresponding

goals
and objectives
.


Recommendations and Implementation steps
in this document
align

with a

I use the data that I have at the District level. I have tried to provide
a link to the GTI section, but, because our server does not allow
anyone from Charleston to access, the data we have already
collected is not available for inclusion, except through someone in
IT granting access. Again, improve the architecture.
