In support of my presentation at GIS-T, I passed out some data model posters and discussed some of the great practices I've seen in various DOT data models. I want to share some of those poster models and host some discussion about the similarities and differences here in this discussion post.
Standing offer to any DOT - send me your data only XML schema and I will make a poster like this. I've developed some scripts that help with modeling the abstract classes and gotten fairly efficient with making the posters in this basic format. A couple of these models were sent to me in 2016 so if they have changed I'd be glad to receive updates too.
