In a very exciting announcement, the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) announced recipients for the 2021 NASCIO State IT Recognition Awards. They named CDOT a winner for the submission of their GeoHub program. We at Xentity are very proud and excited by the news. This is because team members from the Chief Data Office helped in the submission and development of the program. This included Barb Cohn, Huy Huynh and Stefan Hoglund. Huy and Stefan are advancing development of CDOT’s data lake to facilitate the real-time component of the system.

This allows integration with real time feeds from a variety of sources including CDOT’s Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) XML feeds. Also, with the CDOT’s Data Lake and KafkaⓇ feeds. Furthermore, the real time data feeds are integral to two GeoHub applications. Both are crucial for traffic operations and wildfire situational awareness.
