We are underway building a repeatable solutions framework that complies with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) retroreflectivity mandated standards. The solution establishes the means to improve the nighttime visibility of traffic signs to promote safety, enhance traffic operations and facility comfort and convenience for all drivers of all ages and abilities. Benefits include:
- Asset management
- Life cycle analysis
- Tort liability
The GIS-based Sign Inventory Solution is a mobile and web enabled framework built on ESRI ArcGIS Server-based that is a repeatable framework for other cities and counties looking for a system to support the FHWA retroreflectivity standards. GISi is using the ArcGIS Mobile SDK to develop a mobile sign inventory application to run on mobile data collection devices. Field users can make changes to the sign inventory at or near real time if cellular connections are available or when field users return from the field and place the unit into a networked docking station (or gain access to the network via a wireless hotspot). The GIS-based sign inventory system is managed using a Flex API administrative dashboard. The GIS-based sign inventory system uses the ESRI ArcGIS Server Enterprise Advanced framework.
