This guidebook for state DOTs contains over 100 recommendations for managing data from emerging technologies, such as crowdsourcing, in a modern way. It also contains a roadmap for implementing the guidance, as well as several tools including a modern data management capability maturity self-assessment. This guidebook is a good resource for agencies grappling with how to manage new, large datasets, including crowdsource data. The guidebook can assist agencies in understanding the differences between their traditional (and inflexible) data management systems. It also explains why shifting to a more modern approach is necessary to take full advantage of data from emerging technologies, as well as communicating these differences to leadership. Implementation of the guidebook can also help agencies demonstrate use case by use case the value of a more modern approach to data management and use. 1
