The Travel Model Development and Data Management program area is responsible for the organization and use of travel-related information (including traffic counts) and assists to staff with mapping and analysis.

Travel Demand Model

Data Management

Maps

A travel demand model includes elements of roadway and transit networks, and population/ employment data  used to calculate the expected demand.

Within the model, mathematical equations represent each individual's decision including -- the "Why," "When," "Where," and "How" for using various roads -- as well as the "What," which is the mode that is expected to be used to complete a possible trip. 

This is the analysis of transportation related data for national, state, and regional information connecting performance of the overall development and use of transportation.

Traffic data can help measure travel speeds, changes in response, or behavior over time, as well as questions of how to prioritize in funding, research and development.

The maps we use are designed to help with the use and application of travel-related data (including traffic counts) and assist with mapping projects and traffic-related analysis.

Mapping plays a major role in planning, development, and public outreach. Some of these maps support research work, regional development and innovation with plans and projects around the region.
