Title: Road Transportation of Idaho
Originators: Idaho Geospatial Data Clearinghouse
Publisher: Idaho Geospatial Data Clearinghouse
Publication place: Moscow, Idaho USA
Publication date: 2006
Data type: vector digital data
Description
A characterization of the data, including its intended use and limitations.
Abstract:
**This dataset is not longer being updated.**  This dataset was produced as part of a pilot project to consider a proposed framework roads layer for the State of Idaho.    

This data set portrays road centerlines of Idaho. This layer is updated weekly by integrating data from stewards across the State of Idaho.

For a summary of the attribute information contained in the data set see the <a href="http://cloud.insideidaho.org/framework/transportation/roads/RoadTransportationAttributesDescription.pdf" target="_blank">Attribute Descriptions.</a>

To see which local jurisdications are participiating in this effort take a look at the <a href="http://cloud.insideidaho.org/framework/transportation/roads/currentStatus.pdf" target="_blank">status map of source stewards.</a>

Purpose:
These data are intended to serve as a base road centerline transportation layer for North Idaho. This dat set is updated weekly by an extract, transform, load (ETL) process managed by the Idaho Geospatial Data Clearinghouse.  No responsibility is assumed by the Idaho Geospatial Data Clearinghouse in the use of these data.
Supplemental information:
Creating and maintaining an integrated road transportation layer has long been a goal among the GIS community in Idaho.  

In 2001, under executive order of the Governor, the Idaho Geospatial Committee (IGC) was formed to provide policy-level direction and promote efficient and effective use of resources for matters related to geographic information. 

In 2002, the Washington-Idaho National Map Pilot Project integrated road data, and other themes, for a 4 county area near Spokane, WA and Coeur d'Alene, ID.  The data compiled under this effort was made available to The National Map through INSIDE Idaho as an OGC Web Map Service.  While this project was successful, it was realized that a model was not in place for the layer to be continuously updated.  Subsequent efforts took steps to address that shortcoming.

In 2003, the Idaho I-Plan was competed to set forth a strategy to coordinate and manage the collection, maintenance, and distribution of geospatial data themes critical to building an enterprise geographic information system (GIS) in Idaho.  Many folks across the state participated in the writing of this document.

In 2004, an FGDC CAP grant, which was not awarded, was submitted by INSIDE Idaho to create an automated application that would, on a weekly basis, copy a road layer from the Kootenai County FTP site back to a server, extract the archive file, and refresh an OGC Web Map Service containing the road layer. USGS was able to work with INSIDE Idaho under a cooperative agreement that year to develop an automated application that would retrieve metadata from Kootenai County to monitor data sets for updates.  

In 2005, INSIDE Idaho applied for and was awarded an FGDC CAP grant that focused on developing the infrastructure and partnerships needed to integrate up to date public domain data for Idaho for three framework themes (imagery, boundaries, and transportation).  Under this grant, the automated application created the previous year was updated to copy a road layer from the Kootenai County FTP site back to a server, extract the archive file, and refresh an OGC Web Map Service containing the road layer.  

It is important to note, that prior to February 2006, only one local or regional entity had public-domain road transportation data and metadata that was being updated continuously available via the Internet -- Kootenai County.  It is also important to note that between 2002 and 2006 local and tribal governments in North Idaho were developing robust GIS programs to support data maintenance.  In February, 2006 Nez Perce County published, via the Internet, their daily-maintained, public-domain road transportation data and metadata.  This was an important milestone; two road transportation layers that were maintained daily at the local level were in the public-domain and accessible via the Internet.  The opportunity for automated integration of daily maintained local data presented itself.

In June of 2006, under cooperative agreement with USGS, the Coeur d'Alene Tribe and INSIDE Idaho began to develop procedures and tools for sharing and integrating geospatial transportation data among interested parties.  The Tribe was tasked with handling coordination efforts and INSIDE Idaho was tasked with handling the programmatic efforts surrounding automated processing for integration.  A meeting of interested parties resulted in the Coeur d'Alene Tribe, Boundary County and Bonner County making their road transportation data available via the Internet (Nez Perce County and Kootenai County already had their data available) for the purpose of integration.  The group decided on a core set of attributes to be included in the integrated layer. The business case for this effort was 911.

Metadata Standards
Description of the metadata standard used to document the data and reference to any additional extended profiles to the standard used by the metadata producer.
Standard name: FGDC Content Standards for Digital Geospatial Metadata
Standard version: FGDC-STD-001-1998
Time convention: local time
FGDC Plus Metadata Stylesheet
Stylesheet: FGDC Plus Stylesheet
File name: FGDC Plus.xsl
Version: 2.0
Description: This metadata is displayed using the FGDC Plus Stylesheet, which is an XSL template that can be used with ArcGIS software to display metadata. It displays metadata elements defined in the Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM) - aka FGDC Standard, the ESRI Profile of CSDGM, the Biological Data Profile of CSDGM, and the Shoreline Data Profile of CSDGM. CSDGM is the US Federal Metadata standard. The Federal Geographic Data Committee originally adopted the CSDGM in 1994 and revised it in 1998. According to Executive Order 12096 all Federal agencies are ordered to use this standard to document geospatial data created as of January, 1995. The standard is often referred to as the FGDC Metadata Standard and has been implemented beyond the federal level with State and local governments adopting the metadata standard as well. The Biological Data Profile broadens the application of the CSDGM so that it is more easily applied to biological data that are not explicitly geographic (laboratory results, field notes, specimen collections, research reports) but can be associated with a geographic location. Includes taxonomical vocabulary. The Shoreline Data Profile addresses variability in the definition and mapping of shorelines by providing a standardized set of terms and data elements required to support metadata for shoreline and coastal data sets. The FGDC Plus Stylesheet includes the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set. It supports W3C DOM compatible browsers such as IE7, IE6, Netscape 7, and Mozilla Firefox. It is in the public domain and may be freely used, modified, and redistributed. It is provided "AS-IS" without warranty or technical support.
Instructions: On the top of the page, click on the title of the dataset to toggle opening and closing of all metadata content sections or click section links listed horizontally below the title to open individual sections. Click on a section name (e.g. Description) to open and close section content. Within a section, click on a item name (Status, Key Words, etc.) to open and close individual content items. By default, the Citation information within the Description section is always open for display.
