[The slide displays a flow chart that begins with data from various sources being sent directly to the server of transview - Tucson's traveler information source. Incident data is inputted from servers at the Pima County Sheriff's and Tucson Police Departments; event and construction data is sent from the servers of the City of Tucson and Pima County DOTs; and additional event and construction data is entered manually from other local jurisdictions, including: the town of Marana, the town of Oro Valley, the Pascua Yaqui Tribe, the town of Sahuarita, the city of South Tucson, and the Tohono O'odham Nation. From the transview server an arrow is pointing to an image of the transview website (www.transview.org) where information provided by the various agencies is disseminated.]

[From the transview server incident related data is exchanged, using the IEEE 1512 family of standards, with the Regional Archived Data Server (RADS) - Maricopa County's archive and retrieval system for ITS data. The RADS is then shown exchanging that incident data with the Arizona DOT's Highway Conditions and Reporting System (HCRS), again using the IEEE 1512 standards family. Another input of incident data into the HCRS is shown from the Arizona Department of Public Safety. The HCRS is then shown releasing the incoming incident data via Arizona's 511 travel information website and hotline and to an ftp site for the media.]
