The Chicago Region Environmental and Transportation Efficiency (CREATE) Program is a landmark public/private partnership among the City of Chicago, the State of Illinois, six of the nation’s freight railroads and Chicago’s commuter railroad. In order to provide digital mapping and base engineering data to CREATE's many stakeholders, HNTB Corporation was tasked with the development and implementation of the CREATE GIS/Mapping Program and implementation of the CREATE Spatial Portal. This session explores how FME has played a key role in the success in these complex geospatial initiatives. We'll highlight how FME helped HNTB implement an overall solution which includes the provision of secure and centralized existing conditions data (LiDAR, CADD and GIS data) for more than 120 linear miles of rail/transportation corridors in the greater Chicago metropolitan area.
