2013 - Report

A Framework for GIS and Safe Routes to School

As Safe Routes to School programs have increased across the country, a clear need for better data management at the national level has become apparent. 

In light of this, the Technical Assistance department brought 15 experts from various GIS-related fields to Austin, Texas in April 2013 to discuss ways that GIS could be better utilized in Safe Routes to School initiatives and what needs to be done to create a national bike/ped database. A Framework for GIS and Safe Routes to School presents the ideas and recommendations that were discussed at the meeting and was created with the goal that it will advance conversations regarding the ways that GIS can assist Safe Routes to School efforts.
