Abstract To address the lack of management for transportation information, the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials Standing Committee on Research determined that a scoping study should be done to examine the major issues confronting information access and availability for transportation practice. This study examines needs and current practice within the transportation community, identifies the most pressing problems, describes potential models that could be applied, and details a framework for a strategic plan for transportation information management. The study shows the increased opportunity to find meaningful information allows transportation agencies to save funds that 1) could justify the cost of preparing a policy study that details a national strategic plan for transportation information management, and 2) could support a nationally coordinated transportation information management infrastructure for years to come.
