Clarus Transition


RWIS Observation Additions

The objective of this task is to add all RWIS observations to MADIS that don't currently exist in MADIS. In this step of the Clarus to MADIS transition only one observation for each road variable type will be added to MADIS. All observations for each RWIS variable type will be implemented by December 31, 2013 as part of the RWIS multiple observations of the same type task.

RWIS Contributor Role

The MADIS team will contact RWIS contributors once they have been updated/added to MADIS. RWIS contributors should verify that all observations that are being provided are available in MADIS by:

Clarus Team Role

In order for the MADIS team to implement the Clarus Qualtiy Checking Algorithms correctly in MADIS the Clarus team needs to provide the following to the MADIS team:
  • A list that shows all RWIS observations and which QC algorithms are being applied to each observation type
  • The order in which the QC is applied
  • When Clarus QC stops based on a QC algorithm failure.
