Welcome to the Urban Transportation Data and Information Systems Committee (ABJ30) homepage.
 

Scope and Mission

This committee is interested in the design, collection, analysis, and reporting of transportation supply and demand data and the information systems needed to support the application of that data in urban and metropolitan transportation planning efforts. In particular, the committee is interested in:

  • New and innovative techniques for measuring and monitoring the performance of metropolitan transportation systems;
  • Impacts associated with changes in demographic and urban travel behavior characteristics;
  • Effective use of primary (household and other transportation surveys) and secondary (census and other federal, state, local and passive data sources) data;
  • Advancements in information systems and information technology for improved dissemination and sharing of knowledge about metropolitan transportation systems and urban travel behavior, including the role of big data; and
  • Common standards and appropriate recommendations to support the interchange and archiving of information and data.

The mission of the ABJ30 Committee is to provide resources, support and guidance to enhance, enable, and advance the state of the practice with regard to the design, collection, analysis, and reporting of transportation supply and demand data needed to support urban and metropolitan transportation planning efforts.
