Provincial travel information centres are shown on the main map face and enlargements of the Official Road Map of Ontario (ORM) as information for the travelling public. Municipal travel information centres shown are those that are within the enlargements of the ORM. This dataset has been created for producing the ORM. This data set is now available via the Ontario 511 Developer API at https://511on.ca/developers/doc *[ORM]: Official Road Map
All bridges in Ontario are inspected every 2 years using the Ontario Structure Inspection Manual (OSIM) format. The weighted condition of all elements is summarized in the Bridge Condition Index (BCI). More details about the BCI can be found on [the Bridge Safety page](http://www.mto.gov.on.ca/english/highway-bridges/ontario-bridges.shtml) on the Ministry of Transportation website. Bridges that were recently constructed or recently transferred to the Ministry of Transportation may not have been inspected in OSIM format yet. *[OSIM]: Ontario Structure Inspection Manual *[BCI]: Bridge Condition Index
Interchanges are shown on the Official Road Map of Ontario (ORM) as information for the travelling public. This feature class includes all interchanges on provincial highways as well as interchanges on other roads (eg. Municipal, outside of Ontario and US) that are shown on the ORM. *[ORM]: Official Road Map *[eg.]: for example *[US]: United States
GO Transit is the regional public transit service for the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area. This dataset was created as part of the Digital Cartographic Reference Base (DCRB) for the production of the ORM. *[GO]: Government of Ontario *[ORM]: Official Road Map
Data collected between 2005 to 2007, 3% of sample collected in 2005, 51% in 2006 and 46% in 2007. This dataset contains a compilation of data collected from different sources. **VOG 06/** **VOG** **08 (Value of Goods)** : The data is derived from the information collected in the 2006 Ontario Commercial Vehicle Survey. This survey is a roadside intercept survey of truck drivers, which collects information about the trip, commodity and the vehicle. The survey primarily captures intercity trucking activity and under-represents truck flows in urban areas. The value of goods provided in this table is derived from the Commercial Vehicle Survey, but factored up to represent the overall trucking activity on the network segment for 2006 and 2008. **AADTT 2006 and ****AADTT** **2008:** The data is derived from the Ministry of Transportation's (MTO) inventory of annual traffic data for the Provincial Highways. The commercial volumes are first calculated using the AADT and the Commercial Percentage values for each traffic segment. These values are then adjusted to remove variations between segments caused by fluctuations in AADT. The volume given for each direction is one-half of the total value. MTO does not maintain volume by direction. For freeway segments with core/collector configuration, the total volume is divided into four equal portions and assigned to each stream. **Hourly Truck Volumes ( WD00-23 and WN00-23): ** These fields contain estimates of average hourly volumes for a typical weekday and weekend day. The estimates are based on observed hourly distribution at more than 100 directional Commercial Vehicle Survey sites across the province, **AADTT** and other information. **RD _NAME:** Name of the road **VOG** **06:** 2006 average daily value of goods assigned to road network link by directions. **VOG** **08:** 2008 average daily value of goods assigned to road network link by directions. **AADTT** **2006:** 2006 Annual Average Daily Truck Traffic; it is the truck volume assigned to road network link by directions. **AADTT** **2008:** 2008 Annual Average Daily Truck Traffic; it is the truck volume assigned to road network link by directions. **WD** **00-23:** 2008 Weekday ( **WD** ) hourly truck volume; 00 - 23 represents starting hour of the day (e.g. 12 represents 12 P.M. - 1 P.M.). **WN** **00-23:** 2008 Weekend ( **WN** ) hourly truck volume; 00 - 23 represents starting hour of the day (e.g. 12 represents 12 P.M. - 1 P.M.). *[ WD]: Week day *[VOG]: Value of Goods *[AADTT]: Annual Average Daily Truck Traffic *[WN]: Week end *[RD]: Road *[WD]: Week day *[MTO]: Ministry of Transportation *[AADT]: Annual Average Daily Traffic
Pavement condition data is collected annually using an Automatic Road Analyzer (ARAN). Based on the automated data, the condition of the pavement is evaluated in terms of distresses (Distress Manifestation Index, DMI), wheel track rutting (in mm) and roughness (International Roughness Index, IRI). These indices are integrated into one Pavement Condition Index (PCI) for overall pavement condition reporting and analysis.
The Cordon Count Data (CCD) includes directional traffic counts at selected sites to understand how vehicles and people move across the region. Traffic data includes the number of vehicles as well as the number of passengers transported by different vehicle types and the transit system. The interval of CCD collection varies 2-3 years across agencies. CCD provides data for three time periods: 13 hours, AM peak periods, and PM peak periods. Summary data are provided for these three time periods for different screen lines, and directions. *[CCD]: Cordon Count Data
Border crossings are a feature included on the Official Road Map of Ontario (ORM) for information purposes to the travelling public. Includes highway-land and ferry crossings. It was created as part of the Digital Cartographic Reference Base (DCRB) for the production of the ORM. *[ORM]: Official Road Map
The Ministry of Transportation's Remote Northern Transportation Office in Thunder Bay operates 29 airports. These are located in Ontario's far north, extending from the Manitoba border on the west to Hudson's Bay on the north and to the Quebec border on the east. Except for Pickle Lake and Armstrong, these airports serve aboriginal communities, which have no all-weather road access to the rest of Ontario.
This dataset provides details on the location of MTO aggregate pits. Aggregate pits provide the material necessary to build roadways in the province. Official LIO title: Aggregate Sites MTO *[MTO]: Ministry of Transportation
