Overall Progress this Milestone
Identified 5 data improvements for this quarter
See below Primary Uses
Many of the uses of DOT’s data support our Agency Priority Goals in safety.
Value or impact of data
See below Primary data discovery channels
Because DOT has been making a great deal of data available to the public for many years, we find that our users are primarily finding data through our agency Web sites.
See below User suggestions on improving data usability
Users are generally satisfied with our data, and are encouraged by our recent efforts to build Web services for some of our more popular data sets – an effort we began as part of the Digital Government Strategy implementation. Users encouraged DOT to identify additional opportunities to build Web services to serve up our data. In addition, users thought it would be useful for news articles and press releases on DOT Web sites to include references to underlying data sets and encouraged DOT to make agency subject matter expert contact information as clear as possible.
See below User suggestions on additional data releases
In general, users did not have suggestions for additional agency data to release. Users did have suggestions for data sets that they would like to see State and local transportation and transit agencies make open and available.
