Re: INVITATION to a Webcast on the Use of Archive Data for Planning
and Operations Performance Measures sponsored by the I-95 Corridor Coalition
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.
