Our primary responsibility is to make GIS an integral part of business at UDOT by supporting the work of various groups in the central and region offices with focused data and applications. We support UDOT's strategic goals; zero crashes, injuries and fatalities, preserve infrastructure, and optimize mobility, by providing easy access to and visualization of relevant data for improved decision making.
