Big data holds tremendous promise to inform transportation planning at the national and statewide levels. This workshop will demonstrate methods to produce high-quality big data for statewide and national applications. Methods and applications for big data analysis to produce various observed transportation metrics for planning and operations will be presented: equity, traffic counts, resident and visitor travel patterns, recreational travel, and freight. Four breakout groups will be convened to discuss research on how big data are used to evaluate multimodal applications, mobility and accessibility measures, traffic measures and freight and goods movement at the statewide and national level.
