NTIA Statewide Broadband Mapping
The CIT Team includes two primary partners - Virginia Tech’s eCorridors Program through the University's Center for Geospatial Information Technology (Virginia Tech) and the Virginia Geographic Information Network of the Virginia Information Technologies Agency (VGIN/VITA) to develop and maintain a comprehensive statewide data library through the use of existing data/base maps, supplemental data from private/public sector providers, third-party (independent) data collection and verification, survey research methods, self-reporting Internet speed testing and mapping tools, a multi-platform framework and publicly-available online interface for the dissemination of Virginia broadband data. Additionally, the Commonwealth proposes to develop an advanced architecture and model for a “next generation” inventory of broadband-related data, consistent with the ongoing developments in the NTIA and FCC broadband plans and extending the NTIA specification to include a number of other elements of interest to broadband stakeholders in Virginia in a way that is scalable to the national level.
