TheOffice of Data Services and Technology (ODST) is the focal point for all GIS activities in the Department including strategic planning, enterprise deployment, asset traxking, spatial data development, cartographic products, training needs, software purchases, and development of GIS applications.

The Office of Highway System Information and Performance {OHSIP} collects and analyzes report statistics related to the fiscal status, physical and geometric extent, performance, and designation of the State's roadway systems. This enables decision makers and system users to take advantage of quality transportation information to make performance-based decisions about transportation services and infrastructure.

The Office of Planning, Policy, and Program Development (OPPPD) is now located in the Veteran's Affairs building. The office analyzes and reports State roadway systems and fiscal status data. This data is used by Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), executive decision makers, and the public. Some of the major projects we are involved in are Section 500 Reports to FHWA, the Executive Fact Booklet (EFB), and the DRISI internal and external data library. Along with major data study, this office's staff support the Research Transportation Planning Program; the Deployment Advisory Committee; and coordinates research Program Steering Committees and Technical Advisory Panels.
