PMSS Project Details


Project ID:FHWA-PROJ-10-0055
Project Name: Integration of Multistate Clarus Data into Real-Time and Archived Regional Integrated Transportation Information System Data Visualization Tools
Status: Completed
Last Name:Yousuf
First Name:Mohammed
Office: Office of Operations Research and Development
Team:Trans Enabling Technologies Team
Project Description:This study will explore integration of Clarus data with the Regional Integrated Transportation Information System (RITIS) and be able to create some visualization tools to communicate weather-related events.
Start Date: September 24, 2010
End Date: September 23, 2011
The key project objectives are:
(1) Integrate Clarus data into the Regional Integrated Transportation Information System (RITIS) platform.
(2) Develop meaningful real-time visualization of Clarus data.
(3) Develop meaningful archived data visualization that allows for the exploration of multiple transportation datasets.
(4) Test and deploy new functionality for operational, research, and public use.
Background Information: The Regional Integrated Transportation Information System (RITIS), which automatically fuses, translates, and standardizes data obtained from multiple agencies in the region in order to provide an enhanced overall view of the region’s transportation network in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, DC. It did not include weather data or the impact of it on the traffic flow and weather-related events, such as the one that is provided or embedded in the Clarus Initiative.
Test Methodology: Integration of datasets.
Other Information: None
Partners: University of Maryland; Role(s): Technical
Expected Benefits:The expected benefit is the deployment of new visualization tools in Road Weather Management (RWM).
Deliverables:Name: Deployment of updated visualization tools.
Product Type(s): Software, Data
Description: Visual tools will be made available to production servers for Regional Integrated Transportation Information System (RITIS) users and researchers.
Project Findings:Active project with a period of performance (POP) of 9/23/11.
