Intersections were coded using an ArcGIS online application. All DC Intersections were coded using data from Streetsmart by Cyclomedia 2017.

Step-by-step guide

  1. While in editing mode, select an intersection to code.
  2. Use the intersection type drop-down to select the intersection type.
  3. Identify if there are multiple vertices at a given point.
  4. If multiple vertices are present, use the arrows to toggle through and select the intersection type for all vertices.
  5. Close editor window to save.
