How to use this web site.

The New Mexico Statewide ITS Architecture is a roadmap for transportation systems integration in the State of New Mexico over the next 20 years. The New Mexico Statewide ITS Architecture has been developed through a cooperative effort by the region's transportation agencies, led by New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT), covering all surface transportation modes and all roads in the state.

The New Mexico Statewide ITS Architecture was initially developed from existing documentation for the State, a general understanding of the transportation systems in New Mexico, and from information gathered from regional and state government websites. An initial Statewide ITS Architecture was developed and was elaborated on through extensive stakeholder input gathered through a series of stakeholder workshops (June 21, 2006, between July 24 through August 5, 2006 and September 20, 2006), from review with individual stakeholders, and from comments received during the review period. The New Mexico Statewide 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.

The architecture is an important new tool that will be used by:

  • Planning agencies and organizations to better reflect integration opportunities and operational needs into the transportation planning process.  
  • Operating and implementing agencies to recognize and plan for transportation integration opportunities in the Region.
  • Other organizations and individuals that use the transportation system in the Region.

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.

Time Horizon and Services

The New Mexico Statewide ITS Architecture has a time horizon of up to 20 years with particular focus on those systems and interfaces that are likely to be implemented in the next five years. The architecture covers the broad spectrum of Intelligent Transportation Systems, including Traffic Management, Emergency Management, Maintenance and Construction Management, Public Transportation Management, Traveler Information, Commercial Vehicle Operations, and Archived Data Management.

Elements in the architecture are classified as either “existing” or “planned”.  Elements classified as “existing” are those whose interface design is complete, regardless of whether the actual element or interface is implemented.  Elements classified as “planned” are those whose interfaces have not yet been designed.

About this Web Site

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 will provide a method for stakeholders to access the architecture information in order to encourage the use of the New Mexico Statewide 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 region (the "Inventory"), the transportation services that will be provided, transportation-related functions that are envisioned, and the existing and planned interfaces in the state.
