The Santa Fe Regional ITS Architecture is a tool for ITS project planning and development for the City of Santa Fe and surrounding area over the next 15 years. The Santa Fe Regional ITS Architecture has been developed through a cooperative effort by the region's transportation agencies, covering all surface transportation modes and all roads in the region.

This website is a update of the Santa Fe Regional ITS Architecture, which was first developed in Spring 2005. This update is a result of thorough and extensive stakeholder input gathered through a series of stakeholder interviews, with additional stakeholder input collected during an architecture workshop in March 2011. This architecture represents a shared vision on how the region's ITS systems will work together with other agencies in the future and how sharing of information and resources will help provide a safer, more efficient, and more effective transportation system for travelers in the region.

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

  • Planning agencies/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

    This Santa Fe Regional ITS Architecture Update has a time horizon of up to fifteen years with particular focus on those systems and interfaces that are likely to be implemented in the next ten years.   The architecture covers the broad spectrum of Intelligent Transportation Systems, including Traffic Management, Transit Management, Traveler Information, Maintenance and Construction, Emergency Management, Commercial Vehicle Operations, and Archived Data Management over this time horizon.

    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 regional 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 Santa Fe Regional ITS Architecture in both transportation planning and project implementation. In addition, this website will be useful in gathering stakeholder feedback so that the architecture is used and continues to reflect the intelligent transportation system vision for the region.  The menu bar at 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 region.

    The majority of this web site was generated directly from a Turbo Architecture database which defines the architecture for Santa Fe.  This source database in Microsoft Access format is available for download here.
