This New York Statewide Services ITS Architecture (Version 2) is a roadmap for the integration of transportation systems in the State of New York over the next 10 years. The New York Statewide Services ITS Architecture has been developed through a cooperative effort by the state's transportation agencies, led by the New York Department of Transportation (NYSDOT), covering all surface transportation modes and all roads in the state. This New York Statewide Services ITS Architecture represents a shared vision of how each agency's systems will work together in the future, sharing information and resources to provide a safer, more efficient, and more effective transportation system for travelers in the state.
This New York Statewide Services ITS Architecture is an update of earlier New York Statewide Services ITS Architecture that was initially developed in the summer of 2000. An initial draft update architecture was created based on extensive stakeholder input gathered through a series of meetings with stakeholders during the months of November and December 2008. Based on this initial update, additional comments and stakeholder inputs were gathered from a stakeholder review meeting held on December 15, 2008, and from a review period. These comments and inputs were used to create this final New York Statewide Services ITS Architecture.
The architecture is an important new tool that will be used by:
The architecture provides an overarching framework that spans all of these organizations and individual transportation projects. Using the architecture, each transportation project can be viewed as an element of the overall transportation system, providing visibility into the relationship between individual transportation projects and ways to cost-effectively build an integrated transportation system over time.
The purpose of this ITS architecture web site is to organize the details of the architecture into a form that is more readily accessible to stakeholders. It provides a method for stakeholders to access the architecture information in order to encourage the use of the New York Statewide Services ITS Architecture in both transportation planning and project implementation. In addition, this website will be useful in gathering stakeholder feedback. The menu bar at the left provides access to the stakeholders, the transportation systems in the State (the "Inventory"), the transportation services that will be provided, transportation-related functions that are envisioned, and the existing and planned interfaces in the state.
The majority of this web site was generated directly from a Turbo Architecture database that documents the architecture for the New York Statewide Services. The source database in Microsoft Access format is available here.
