Data integration is essential for building traffic records information systems. Florida has been successful in achieving statewide integration of 3 of 6 traffic data systems – crash, citation and roadway – accomplished as a partnership among state agencies and the University of Florida. The integration is performed in real time daily by linking crashes and citations to the Florida Roads Basemap LRS through a web-based geolocation tool used by law enforcement during crash and citation reporting. The integrated database is available to Florida users through a web-based analytical system. This presentation discusses technical and organizational aspects of the integration, challenges, limitations, lessons learned and future expansion plans.
