The ENTERPRISE Pooled Fund Study conducted this project to develop a consistent communication approach for providing transportation agency map updates to mapping/navigation companies that utilize DOT-generated data for various applications such as route guidance. To accomplish the project objective, a survey was distributed to DOTs to document the processes used by those agencies that have provided map updates to mapping/navigation companies. Interviews were then conducted with select mapping/navigation companies to document their process for receiving map updates from DOTs to make updates to their digital maps. A webinar was held with ENTERPRISE members, survey respondents and mapping/navigation companies to gather additional input on the process. Based on the information gathered from the survey, webinar and interviews, a framework was developed to assist DOTs as they provide map updates to select mapping/navigation companies. The steps DOTs follow to submit a map change are similar, but because details may vary by each mapping/navigation company, a separate framework was developed for each company. The framework developed in this project offers a first step toward consistently submitting map updates to mapping/navigation companies and identifies additional efforts states may collectively consider for defining and standardizing the process nationally in the future.
