ITRE has a background in collecting and aligning geospatial data to meet a variety of stakeholder needs, including large scale geospatial program development for bicycling and walking and collection of data for mapping and research purposes

Using a three phase approach, ITRE developed the Pedestrian and Bicycle Infrastructure Network for the state of North Carolina, a geodatabase of bicycle and pedestrian facilities that had been mapped in association with planning and project objectives by agencies and organizations across the state.

The following are key geospatial services that ITRE is experienced in providing:

  • Asset management of bicycle and pedestrian facilities, signage, markings, and amenities
  • Large scale GIS data collection and warehousing
  • Standardization of terminology, formatting, and fields
  • Development of integration protocols and processes
  • Standardizing GIS collection processes
  • Mapping and analytical services

Webinar: Basics of the Pedestrian and Bicycle Infrastructure Network

The North Carolina Department of Transportation Division of Bicycle and Pedestrian Transportation and ITRE are pleased to offer a webinar on the first release of the Pedestrian and Bicycle Infrastructure Network, a database that houses geospatial information on North Carolina’s bicycling, walking, and shared use networks.

This webinar was developed to give GIS program managers, planners, engineers, and transportation professionals a basic background to the geospatial information found in the Pedestrian and Bicycle Infrastructure Network. It will cover the following topic areas:

  • Assets stored in the GIS database
  • General structure of the PBIN
  • PBIN Data Coverage
  • Uses of PBIN data
  • Supporting resources and data access
  • Adding/modifying data in the PBIN and technical assistance
  • Data not stored in the PBIN
  • Examples of data products

The first 45 minutes of the webinar will consist of course content and 15 minutes will be reserved for questions at the end of the viewing. This webinar does not qualify for Professional Development Hours.

The learning outcomes for this course are to:

  • Describe existing GIS assets which are stored in the PBIN.
  • Explain what the PBIN is, it’s uniqueness and it’s limitations.
  • Describe uses of the PBIN by municipal agencies, other stakeholders and NCDOT
  • Recognize your agency’s role in updating the PBIN based on local data.
  • Organize your agency’s data in the PBIN format and where to get technical assistance, if it is needed.
  • List and locate key PBIN resources.
