Traffic Data Program

Traffic data consists of timestamped geolocation data that indicates the speeds and directions at which vehicles are moving on a particular roadway or area. Traffic data has uses in traffic management applications for smart cities, mapping, navigation and route planning, and location intelligence.

Traffic data collection is a worldwide activity used to determine current traffic patterns and help predict future traffic trends. Our goal is to be a trusted source of data, information and maps for transportation decision-makers.

NOTE: Data not adjusted for seasonal variances.



What are Traffic Counts?

What are traffic counts, and what are they used for?

Traffic volume counts are basic to all phases of highway development and operation. No other single reference tells an engineer as much about a road as the number of vehicles which use it. Traffic volumes are needed for street and highway project development, financing considerations, project cost-benefit comparisons, project priority determinations, analyzing, monitoring and controlling traffic movement on roadways, traffic accident statistics, research purposes, street and highway maintenance, public information, highway legislation and other public and private purposes.
