USDOT giving data to cities for app development

Smart Car TechnologyThe rate of change in transportation on every level is challenging for planners and engineers alike. The American Planning Association Florida (APA-FL) recently discussed in a membership newsletter about how the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) is sharing data with cities to develop apps that help with future planning projects and transportation needs may offer insight to the process. The USDOT developed OSADP – the Open Source Application Development Portal – to help with the advancement of research, development, planning, testing, and deployment of connected vehicle and traveler-related applications and intelligent transportation systems. The web-based portal features source code, software, applications, and resources.
