Data management and governance practices by Nasir G Gharaibeh( Book )

This synthesis provides information on current practices in data governance, data warehousing and cloud computing, data integration and sharing, and data quality assurance. The objective was to develop a collection of transportation agency data management practices and experiences. The information in this synthesis was gathered through a literature review, a two-phase online survey, and follow-up interviews with four agencies. The report demonstrates how agencies currently access, manage, use, and share data. The study found that a pyramid-shaped data governance structure is commonly used in the literature. This structure consists of (1) an upper-level committee providing oversight and strategic direction, (2) enterprise data stewards providing coordination across business units, and (3) stewards accountable for the quality and use of individual information technology. In most cases, DOTs have data stewards and data coordinators for managing individual data sets and coordinating data management across multiple data sets within a business area. However, most agencies indicated they do not have a data governance council or board and do not have a document that describes their data governance model and serves as a guide. A more top-down data governance approach could help recognize and leverage the value of data generated and/or stored in various agency silos and could spur increased data integration. Interviews with transportation agencies indicated that key motivations and early benefits of implementing data governance include (1) improved accountability to produce high quality and reliable data, (2) ensuring that the data are accessible and integrated using a common linear referencing system, and (3) engaging business areas within transportation agencies in their data, rather than viewing data as strictly an information technology issue. The study found that most DOTs store and manage data collected during the operation and monitoring phases of roadway systems in data warehouses or marts. Data collected at early phases of the asset/project life cycle are more likely to reside in disparate files and databases. The use of cloud computing services for storing and managing data is expected to grow; however, most DOTs and local agencies are uncertain about the magnitude of this growth in their agencies. Transportation agencies are using multiple linear and geographic referencing methods in their data sets, indicating that incompatibility among these methods remains an impediment to increased data integration within these agencies. Most survey respondents indicated data sharing and access has been improved through: (1) increased use of web-based data storage and access, (2) improved database management systems, and (3) reduced use of hardware and software that require specialized data formats

The varibility of rainfall in Guyana is discussed and demonstrated by use of the Contingency Index. The changes are shown as both areal and seasonal. The size of cells in relationship to the season is demonstrated. The concept that a preceding month can be used as a predictor for a succeeding month is investigated for some stations in Guyana. Scatter diagrams and correlation coefficients indicate that an inaccurate forecast would probably result. The ojive of cumulative frequency vs. cumulative amounts of daily rainfall is used to compare the rainfall in Cambodia with rainfall in Central America. Most of the Cambodian rainfall ojives are similar to the Central American curves. A study of the hourly rainfall for several stations in Cambodia provides a mean rainstorm for the area. The duration and hourly amounts are also noted. A contingency method study for three stations with long periods of records in SEA has elicited the information that a few relationships between rainfall in one month and the amount in a succeeding month have highly significant correlation. These cases are to be studies in more detail. (Author)

The report gives a summary of some of the Texas A and M oceanographic research in the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean which was carried on during fiscal year 1968. Included are reviews of work in physical oceanography, geophysical research, sedimentary characteristics, geotechnical properties, acoustic characteristics, remote sensing, air-sea interaction, microwave parameters, chemical oceanography, and bio-environmental studies. The field work carried out aboard the R/V ALAMINOS is summarized, and publications, papers, and reports resulting from the work are presented. (Author)

The major portion of contractual effort during the period covered by this report has been devoted to verification of the wiring of the general purpose analog computer patchboards which contain the system of equations proposed for simulating a tropical forest atmosphere. Included in this verification has been the establishment of a procedure that will permit checking of all wiring connections in a minimum amount of time. A set of data representative of a tropical forest atmosphere has been assembled for initial testing of the proposed equation system. These data are included in this report along with a brief description of the environment in which the data were collected. Tentative solutions obtained by use of these data as input values for the tropical forest equations are included in order to illustrate the nature of the simulation. (Author)
