Learn how outsourced probe data is being used for performance measures and planning at
various levels - national, regional, and specific MPOs.
The Travel Information Services Program Track (TISPTC) is inviting you to participate in a
webcast titled "The Use of Archive Data for Planning and Operations Performance
Measures" on Thursday, December 2, 2010 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM (EST).
Shawn Turner (Texas Transportation Institute) - Use of Private Sector Speed Data for
Historical Performance Monitoring: Lessons Learned from National and State-Level Analyses.
His presentation will include lessons learned through TTI's three most recent
projects/applications: 2010 Urban Mobility Report (to be released in early December 2010);
Texas DOT's 100 Most Congested Roadway Segments; and, Minnesota DOT's Pilot
Project for Statewide Reporting. Shawn will also discuss key insights that will help
public agency staff more easily procure and use private sector speed data in their
agency's planning and performance monitoring processes.
Michael Pack (University of Maryland CATT Lab) - I-95 Corridor Coalition Vehicle Probe
Project (VPP) Dashboard & Data Download Tool. Michael will explain this tool that was
developed for North Carolina's VPP Performance Measures project and incorporates
incident data through RITIS (Regional Integrated Transportation Information System) with
real-time and archived data and provides access to raw data for report development beyond
scope of this application. Michael will also review the data that is being collected and
the performance measures that can be calculated.
Andrew Meese (Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments) - Use of the Vehicle Probe
Project data for Congestion Management Process Support. More specifically, Andrew will
review MWCOG's efforts regarding their use of the VPP data in the Congestion
Management Process (CMP), speed validation in travel forecasting models, and speed
distribution for air quality modeling.
Andrew will also discuss the advantages and caveats and the potential future uses of the
Vehicle Probe Project data by his agency.
