Linear referencing maintenance and analysis.
Rizing’s Productivity Tools are a set of four tools to assist transportation agencies with linear referencing maintenance and analysis workflows that Linear Referencing System (LRS) products do not fully address.
They can be used with Esri Roads and Highways and compatible with the ArcGIS linear referencing capabilities and other LRS data models.
The Productivity Tools include one desktop tool (Intersection Manager) and three web tools (Segment Analyzer, Validation Assistant, and Report Engine). Rizing’s HPMS Assistant product uses the Productivity Tools as a foundation and addresses the requirements related to the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA’s) Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS) annual submittal process.
Segment Analyzer provides the ability to combine road characteristic data modeled in normalized relational tables into segmented tables based on various methods. Output can be provided in a comma-separated values (CSV) file at the desktop or stored in Oracle or SQL Server tables. The tables and centerline geometry can be used for additional analysis, reports, complex validations, input to legacy data systems, or any other productivity needs.
Validation Assistant performs data validations on single or multiple tables (cross-table validations). Validation exceptions are provided in “punch lists” and can then be addressed in a map editing tool. If users have implemented R&H, the nonconforming data can be repaired in R&H Event Editor using linkages to each offending record. Users can review the records and resolve potential problems or mark records as exceptions or anomalies that can be ignored.
Report Engine is a web-based report building and printing tool that allows users to create, export, and print standard and ad-hoc reports using multiple data sources including Esri R&H, Segment Analyzer, HPMS Assistant, Rizing’s straight line diagramming product Road Analyzer, or any set of relational database tables and views, including geodatabases.
This tool generates intersection and interchange locations, approach extents, and intersection characteristics from a transportation agency’s geo-database to them with populating the intersection-related Model Inventory of Roadway Elements data recommended by FHWA and for use in Safety Analyst and Highway Safety Improvement Program analyses.
