CTDOT, in a joint effort with the Connecticut Transportation Safety Research Center (CTSRC) and Transcend Spatial Solutions (TSS), is developing innovative tools to collect and maintain Model Inventory of Roadway Element data to support safety analysis. The presentation will demonstrate two tools; CTSRC’s development of a Web-based desktop Intersection Inventory Tool to collect MIRE intersection/ approach attribution quickly and accurately utilizing an LRS, aerial photography, and crowd sourced street level imagery, and a CTDOT/TSS prototype browser-based MIRE compliant field data tool that utilizes GPS to auto-locate the collector, has data views that enable multiple assets to be collected simultaneously and works in disconnected mode.
