Just released by the Transportation Research Board was the proceedings
of a national conference on applying Census Data for Transportation
Last November, well over 100 transportation data users came together in
Kansas City Missouri to share experiences with the use of Census data,
including new techniques for integrating different data sets for use in
transportation planning and decision making. The conference provided an
opportunity for participants to discuss opportunities, limitations, and
challenges involved in using Census data, data available from the
private sector, and data from global positioning systems and other
technologies. Finally, participants were able to discuss research and
training needs associated with applying Census data and data from other
sources to transportation planning and decision making.
I encourage anyone with an interest in data and transportation planning
to take a look at the conference proceedings.
