Transformational Changes and Revolutionary Advances for Transportation Planning

The vision of this research is to promote systematic cost-effective and coordinated approaches to acquiring and using data for long range transportation planning. The research is intended to generate, synthesize and transfer existing knowledge on a variety of source data. Specifically, the objectives are to: (1)Identify procedures to improve efficiency of data collection; (2) Identify institutional opportunities and impediments to exploiting IT-based data sources for transportation planning; (3) Generate guidance for building forecasting capacity using new approaches to integrating transportation data; (4) Generate decision methods and tools for use of developing and implementing data collection strategies; (5) Demonstrate an innovative forecasting application supported by significant improvements in data. This would be focused on a hypothetical disaster response planning problem; and (6) Identify future opportunities for building planning capacity based on new sources of transportation data.
