With a 58,000-mile network of highways and bridges, 4 underwater crossings, 2 mountain tunnels, 3 ferries and 20,800 bridges to maintain, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is a busy organization. In 2013 the VDOT team began using Tableau technology to analyze operations and crash events, and in 2014 they rolled out phase two to optimize the deployment of DOT assets.
Data visualization technology was new to the VDOT culture, and there are some implementation best practices learned along the journey. In this presentation hear how VDOT brought together more than 200 source systems, their ETL platform, their data warehouse, and their end user community to better serve the citizens of Virginia and the travelers who move along the state’s transportation network.
