Event description


Please join the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) for its 36th installment in a quarterly webcast series, featuring urban planning consultant Rachel Goldsmith's "LandTracker" application and its use at the MBTA and Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT).

This webinar series continues to highlight innovations in geospatial technologies and best practices among GIS professionals in US State Departments of Transportation.


Rachel Goldsmith, Urban Planning Consultant, Greystone

Rachel Goldsmith is a Boston-based urban planning consultant working in the areas of real estate asset management and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Specifically, she partners with public landowners to help them develop comprehensive inventories of their real estate holdings and to deliver this information to stakeholders in an accessible way. This work supports the agencies on multiple levels, including: value generation and capture; tenant management; identifying surplus land for disposition; site selection for transit-oriented and other development projects; responding to security and maintenance concerns; and answering public and intra-agency inquiries.


This presentation will focus on the MBTA LandTracker, the application that Ms. Goldsmith developed for the transit authority in Massachusetts. The LandTracker has over 600 users in the agency and has recently been expanded to include MassDOT Highway information as well. It tracks MBTA/MassDOT property ownership at the parcel level including all title documents, deeds, and plans related to the parcels. The system integrates with the Authority’s accounting database to display leases, licenses, and other assets to users. Participants in the presentation will understand how the application works, an overview of the LandTracker data model, and the administrative/political conditions that encouraged its successful development.
