60 Table A.1 presents the resource list of important CIM tools and functions as obtained from the FHWA, DOTs, and other data sources. A brief description of each resource is also provided. It has to be noted that this list can become outdated. The research team suggests that agencies consider revising this table (or a similar catalog for CIM resources) periodically.
