TMIP Webinar: A Glimpse of How Data, Tools and Technology Are Used in the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) Planning Process

2:00 - 4:30pm EST

Presented by Kyung-Hwa Kim, David D'Onofrio, and Melissa Roberts (ARC)

The current U.S. transportation authorization legislation, MAP-21, institutionalizes performance-based planning.  That approach evaluates the existing system through a series of performance measures, and then selects and prioritizes projects by evaluating their anticipated effect on those measures.  Practiced well, performance-based planning can help resource-strapped agencies address the most significant needs and realize the greatest return on their investments.

The regional travel demand model has been the key tool for regional transportation needs assessment in the Metro-Atlanta region for decades, but advances in performance measurement have outstripped the ability of the travel demand model to capture all the information available today.  Open source data and tools, as well as private resources such as Google Maps with Traffic and datasets built from other navigation devices, are now readily available as an alternative source of quantitative information.  Using such datasets effectively is a serious challenge for travel demand modelers and transportation planners, and it will have important ramifications for how we build and use modeling and analysis tools in the future.

This webinar will cover how planners and modelers work with emerging new mega data and traditional travel demand model data in the performance planning process, by explaining how the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) is using these new datasets and analysis tools to support its planning activities.
