Dan Morgan, Chief Data Officer for the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT), walks through the process for developing the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Public Data Hub System that integrates multiple data sources using the Socrata metadata API to provide a one-stop shop for users to explore the USDOT’s ITS data. He describes the challenges faced when developing a solution for storing streaming data for the Connected Vehicle Pilots – a program that will generate several terabytes of public facing data by its completion. Lastly, Dan discusses the increased visibility and use of the data by the public and where to find the open source code developed for this hybrid system implementation.
