DESCRIPTION OF JOB:
The GIS Specialist develops, manages, and maintains statewide roadway data sets using CDOT's linear referencing system (LRS). This system represents the current status of the state's full system roadway network for use by CDOT and other state staff, federal agencies, MPOs, local governments and the general public. This network is used as the basis for corridor planning, environmental analysis, long-range planning, Highway User Tax Fund (HUTF) certification, Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS) reporting, asset management, roadway maintenance, permitting and other federal reporting requirements, such as bridges, roadway projects and traffic safety. Roadway LRS networks, associated event data and databases are analyzed and maintained to identify options for projects that are managed by CDOT Regions or included in Statewide Plans. Geographic and tabular data are captured and analyzed in coordination with environmental planners, engineers and surveyors in statewide and corridor-based activities.
This position is responsible for communicating with local governments to collect tabular and geographic information utilized by the HUTF program. In addition, supporting technical support to the WebHUT online reporting application will necessitate good customer service orientation to support local government users. The position will also learn to participate in planning and project development activities by integrating, inputting, analyzing and presenting information about existing transportation systems from both tabular and geographic data sets, as well as provide additional support to other programs within the Unit.
