Transportation Database/GIS

Conducting the MPOís regional transportation planning and programming process involves the use of a diverse amount of data on the region and its transportation network. Much of the data has a spatial element to it and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is used to analyze and present that data. Data used at the MPO includes census, land use, environmental, transportation network and transportation project data among others. While some of this information is developed by RRPDC staff, a great deal is developed by VDOT, VDRPT, consultants, area local governments.

Responding to information requests involving data often requires staff to develop the appropriate information (i.e. aggregate census data to the regional level), refer the requesting organization or individual to another agency, or advise them that the information is not available.

Key activities include:

  • Development of region specific transportation and socioeconomic data for use in various reports, studies, plans, and programs.

  • Develop, print, post on the RRPDC website, and distribute informational reports on transportation plans, programs, activities, and data.

Staff development and maintenance of the GIS software and related files is also required. The use of GIS has become an integral part of the transportation planning process, providing the ability to analyze and present spatial information in a clear and concise manner.

Key activities include:

  • Development of maps and the spatial analysis of data. This includes maps used in the LRTP, CMS, TIP and other staff, local, and VDOT plan and study activities.

  • Technical assistance to area local governments, state and regional agencies in spatial analysis and display of data on a local, sub area, corridor, or regional basis.

Street Name Clearinghouse is a program undertaken by the Richmond Regional Planning District Commission. The programís goal is to prevent street name duplication in the region and to eliminate, whenever possible, duplicate street names which already exist. Duplicate street names, even across jurisdictions, can create confusion in property and address location. This confusion not only increases public and private service delivery costs, but it can lead to problems for the E-911 system and cause serious delays for emergency responders. The Street Name Clearinghouse is a voluntary advisory program. The local governments in the region have recognized the  importance of the program and usually honor the recommendations made regarding new street names.
