INDUSTRY INVOLVEMENT

TRB

Transportation Research Board
The Transportation Research Board (TRB), as part of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, is a leading organization in transportation improvements and innovation. TRB facilitates the trusted, timely, impartial, and evidence-based exchange of information, research, and advice regarding all modes of transportation. Many Kimley-Horn staff begin their involvement in TRB during college and continue that participation throughout their careers. Our staff have been selected to chair committees, lead workshops, facilitate lectern sessions, present research, and publish papers in the Transportation Research Record: Journal of the Transportation Research Board (TRR). To date, we have written or contributed to more than 50 papers published in the TRR.

SPEAKER

All Roads Great and Small: Measuring Congestion on a Regional Roadway Network using Big Data

June 23, 2021 | 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM EST

As transportation systems continue to grow more complex and funding scarcer, transportation planners are working to evolve data-based approaches to problem identification. In 2017-2020, the Metropolitan Council successfully leveraged big data sources to identify and characterize congestion. This presentation will highlight the use of GIS data foundation, R-based data analysis techniques, interactive visualization tools, and the Council’s process to develop a data management program.  

  • Learn about the process to develop the GIS data foundation and congestion thresholds 
  • Learn how to work with big data such as that provided by Streetlight to quantify roadway performance 
  • Learn about analytical tools for working with Open Street Maps
