CAMBRIDGE, England — 1Spatial ( www.1spatial.com) is the global spatial software firm, which manages the world’s largest spatial data. The Arizona Department of Transport has bought 1Spatial’s 1Integrate product to validate its state-wide road network. The Department will validate and integrate its own road network information with regular updates from multiple contributing government bodies within the state.
1Spatial’s 1Integrate technology will enable the Department of Transport in Arizona to automatically quality assure the information it receives from the combination of fifteen counties and seventeen public-safety answering points (PSAPs) by validating it against a set of pre-defined business rules. They will also be able to match new data submissions against the current version of the road network to identify changes in geometry and other attributes and apply these changes. This new process will save them a significant amount of time and money over a manual process and also ensure the accuracy of the state-wide data map.
Duncan Guthrie, 1Spatial’s Director of Sales North America, explains, “We are delighted to be awarded this contract by Arizona Department of Transport and to be able to work with James Meyer, his team and Works Consulting, their primary contractor. The solution we are implementing will provide significant automation to their processes and we look forward to a great partnership working together in the future.”

About The Arizona Department of Transportation
The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) is a multimodal transportation agency serving one of the fastest-growing areas of the country. ADOT is responsible for planning, building and operating a complex highway system in addition to building and maintaining bridges and the Grand Canyon Airport. A major component of the organization is the Motor Vehicle Division, which provides title, registration and driver-license services to the general public throughout the state of Arizona.
ADOT is funded by the people who purchase fuel, drive or own private and commercial vehicles, or use transportation services. To build and operate the state’s transportation systems, individuals and businesses invest money through fuel taxes, motor-carrier fees and vehicle title, registration and license fees. About 80 percent of the money ADOT collects returns to the private sector in the form of paychecks and payment for transportation services and materials.
Transportation puts people to work building projects. Projects, in turn, deliver goods and services that spur economic development and attract jobs to the state, creating a cycle of economic benefit.
We at ADOT strive to deliver a range of transportation projects successfully in an economic environment with fewer employees and declining resources. Like you, we are trying to do more with less as we sharpen our focus on results for Arizona.
We continue to examine diverse, integrated transportation options for moving people and goods to create jobs and deliver economic and quality-of-life benefits for Arizona residents and businesses. ADOT’s role is to assist policymakers by providing objective information that helps them decide the best solutions to connect communities across Arizona with the full range of resources available.
