Last week the CTPP Planning group was discussing the forthcoming TAZ
verification software and process. The software that will be used
will be similar to the TAZ-UP software that was distributed last
summer. It will run on PC versions of ArcView.
The purpose of the verification process will be to check the TAZ's
that were submitted against what got coded into TIGER. In the
ideal, the TAZ plan that was submitted this past Fall should match
what was put into TIGER so any changes would be minimal.
During the discussion of the TAZ verification software it dawned on
me that several regions used non PC-based ArcView processes in
creating their original TAZ plans. Since last weeks meeting I have
talked to few folks who used other than TAZ-UP procedures and they
did not think they would have any problems reading the new TIGER
file and checking their TAZ boundaries.
Although the CTPP planning group has a list of non PC-based ArcView
users in its files, I would like to make sure that it is complete.
If you submitted a TAZ plan and were NOT a PC-based ArcView user
please send me a short email to let me know.
