Two important activities associated with the management and planning of transportation systems are the collection of information about the system and the provision of information to users of the system. Both activities typically involve siting facilities to collect and/or communicate information. Such facilities can be costly to obtain and operate and may be located to serve specific planning objectives. This presentation describes the various challenges associated with both collection and provision of information in transportation systems in support of multiple planning/management efforts. Potential modeling approaches for siting such facilities are then detailed. A case study is then provided to highlight the impact that the facility configurations identified by the proposed models can have on the ability to collect and distribute information in a transportation system.
