Upcoming Webinar from the Research and Innovative Technology Administration

Webinar Title: Transportation Data Visualization: Innovations in Performance Measurement and Real-time Situational Awareness. A Live Demo!

Webinar Date: Wednesday, September 5, 2012, 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM ET

Webinar Description: This live demo and presentation will focus on emerging and ever-improving visualization and information management technologies that are fueling innovation and improved services for the public, decision makers, and our own transportation partners. Information visualization, when applied to both real-time transportation operations data and massive archives of historical data, can significantly strengthen an agency’s ability to justify (or increase) its budget, make quicker, more effective planning decisions, answer tough questions from public officials, and significantly improve the quality and effectiveness of incident response and emergency management.

Throughout this 90-minute webinar, attendees will discover significant advancements in the development of sophisticated visual analytics systems that promise to put performance measures, after action review resources, decision support tools, incident prediction, and a wealth of other resources at our fingertips over the coming years.

These tools, created by the University of Maryland Center for Advanced Transportation Technology Laboratory, focus heavily on usability and ease of access. With a few quick mouse clicks, a user can produce interactive reports, incident heat maps, animations of past traffic conditions, detailed incident response graphics, rank statewide bottlenecks, and derive a variety of other interesting and useful information.

Webinar Presenter:

  • Michael Pack, Center for Advanced Transportation Technology Laboratory (CATT) at the University of Maryland (College Park, MD)
  • The webinar will be hosted by Ray Murphy of the U.S. Department of Transportation – Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) Office of Technical Services.
