    Minnesota DOT wins FHWA Excellence Award for ROW Mapping Application

    This article was originally published by Applied Geographics Inc. (AppGeo), a company acquired by The Sanborn Map Company Inc in September 2022.

    AppGeo extends its congratulations to Kevin Leonard and Roy Blanke of MnDOT’s Office of Land Management for receiving this Federal Highway Administration Excellence in Right of Way Award for Innovation.

    MnDOT had the vision and the definition of more than 20 use cases by which mapping would add value to current Right of Way (ROW) work processes. AppGeo is proud to have had the opportunity to work alongside MnDOT staff on this project to geo-enable the Right-of-Way Electronic Land Management System (REALMS) in a manner that directly links mapping capabilities to the existing work environment and database system. Our Team (including Minnesota-based Pro-West and Associates, and Rowekamp and Associates) worked with MnDOT to implement those use cases using AppGeo’s GPV technology, thereby making interactive mapping a seamless part of the existing REALMS work environment. Going forward, AppGeo’s configurable GPV platform will allow MnDOT staff to continue to add mapping capabilities to REALMS in response to evolving staff requirements.

    “This biennial awards program was developed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to honor those who excel in improving the real property acquisition process while ensuring that property owner and tenant rights are protected.” (from the FHWA website)
