Highway Data Services
Welcome to the West Virginia Department of Transportation’s Geospatial Transportation Information (GTI) main page.
Historically the West Virginia Department of Transportation (WVDOT) has been utilizing geospatial (Geographic Information System (GIS), Remote Sensing, & Global Positioning System (GPS)) technology for planning, analysis, and mapping purposes ever since the technology became available.
In 2005 the WVDOT GIS Section was created to meet the growing needs for geospatial data and services in transportation. In 2007 the GIS Section was reorganized as the GIS Unit and merged with the Highway Data Services (HDS) Unit, a program responsible for processing roadway additions, changes or abandonment requests from the Districts, and the update and maintenance of the Roadway Inventory File. The two units together formed the Geospatial Transportation Information (GTI) Section.
Now the GTI Section is composed of 22 full time professionals and is located within the Division of Highways (WVDOH) Program Planning and Administration Division.
