Architecture Flow Definitions

archive requests  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

A request to a data source for information on available data (i.e. "catalog") or a request that defines the data to be archived. The request can be a general subscription intended to initiate a continuous or regular data stream or a specific request intended to initiate a one-time response from the recipient.

archive status  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Notification that data provided to an archive contains erroneous, missing, or suspicious data or verification that the data provided appears valid. If an error has been detected, the offending data and the nature of the potential problem are identified.

archived data product requests  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

A user-specified request for archived data products (i.e. data, meta data, or data catalogs). The request also includes information that is used to identify and authenticate the user and support electronic payment requirements, if any.

archived data products  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Raw or processed data, meta data, data catalogs and other data products provided to a user system upon request. The response may also include any associated transaction information.

incident information  (Medium-term)  Applicable ITS Standards

Notification of existence of incident and expected severity, location, time and nature of incident. As additional information is gathered and the incident evolves, updated incident information is provided. Incidents include any event that impacts transportation system operation ranging from routine incidents (e.g., disabled vehicle at the side of the road) through large-scale natural or human-caused disasters that involve loss of life, injuries, extensive property damage, and multi-jurisdictional response. This also includes special events, closures, and other planned events that may impact the transportation system.

parking information  (Medium-term)  Applicable ITS Standards

General parking information and status, including current parking availability.

road network conditions  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Current and forecasted traffic information, road and weather conditions, and other road network status. Either raw data, processed data, or some combination of both may be provided by this architecture flow. Information on diversions and alternate routes, closures, and special traffic restrictions (lane/shoulder use, weight restrictions, width restrictions, HOV requirements) in effect is included along with a definition of the links, nodes, and routes that make up the road network.

traffic archive data  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Information describing the use and vehicle composition on transportation facilities and the traffic control strategies employed. Content may include a catalog of available information, the actual information to be archived, and associated meta data that describes the archived information.

traffic images  (Medium-term)  Applicable ITS Standards

High fidelity, real-time traffic images suitable for surveillance monitoring by the operator or for use in machine vision applications.

transit service information  (Medium-term)  Applicable ITS Standards

Transit service information including routes, schedules, and fare information as well as dynamic transit schedule adherence and transit vehicle location information.

transportation information for operations  (Medium-term)  Applicable ITS Standards

Information on the state of transportation system operations including traffic and road conditions, advisories, incidents, transit service information, weather information, parking information, and other related data.

traveler archive data  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Data associated with traveler information services including service requests, facility usage, rideshare, routing, and traveler payment transaction data. Content may include a catalog of available information, the actual information to be archived, and associated meta data that describes the archived information.
