, Former Director, Center for Transportation Studies
The Center for Transportation Studies (CTS) partnered with the Office of Land Management at the Minnesota Department of Transportation to shape a consultant contract to conduct a Phase I scoping project. The project defined future phases to evaluate the mapping functions. CTS also designed an oversight structure, and participated in the guidance of the consultant project, before identifying methods to improve the production, product characteristics, and delivery of land management mapping. The mapping was completed to a level that met the customer's needs based on the organization's existing structural, financial, and political environment.
