Visualizing Statewide Trips: Tools to Leverage GPS Data in Transportation Planning | Article, Research Report
Using Small Starts funding from the National Institute for Transportation and Communities (NITC), the University of Utah has produced a suite of visual analysis tools for state DOTs and other agencies. The research team, led by Dr. Nikola Markovic, utilizes GPS trajectory data to model and analyze mobility trends through interactive online animations. To demonstrate the tool's value to interested agencies, the team purchased one month of Utah trajectory data to run their software on; sample graphics of their results are included in this article.
Note: On April 7, 2020 Markovic and his colleague Mark Franz will show the value of GPS trajectory data in understanding statewide travel patterns and measuring performance in a NITC webinar Visual Exploration of Trajectory Data.

This report summarizes the proceedings of the 2019 Transportation Performance Management (TPM) Peer Exchange sponsored by the Transportation Performance Management Pooled Fund, led by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) and the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (DOT). The peer exchange was held in St. Paul, Minnesota on November 14-15, 2019 and focused on how transportation agencies are implementing TPM in light of federal requirements and advancing TPM and performance-based planning and programming (PBPP) practice. The purpose of the peer exchange was to provide participants an opportunity to share their experiences implementing TPM and to discuss related best practices, including how to resource and align their internal performance management systems with federal requirements. They also discussed current communication challenges and the future of TPM. The primary goal of this peer exchange was to advance the state of the TPM practice, particularly by sharing lessons learned.
