Transportation organizations and researchers are creating and sharing data, information, and knowledge by using a growing variety of electronic tools and interfaces. Formal and informal communities of experts and users often form around these various information platforms. Sometimes these communities can be tapped to reveal and improve their collective user experience with various tools. In other cases, the combined communications of a community can allow researchers to identify trends or reveal hidden knowledge. In this session, the presenters discuss their various surveys of transportation communities and how their findings can be used to improve transportation information sharing and knowledge retention.
