Examination of Streetlight Data
Center for Applied Demography & Survey Research
Web based data analysis sites could have a very large impact on transportation planning and data development. Estimates can be performance data such as volumes and speeds, but also travel demand information since trip estimates going into and out of various land uses can be produced. Streetlight and products like it are very promising and could change the way we get transportation information. The big question is how close to reality estimates might be. An excellent application of the traffic and travel demand data compiled in this project is the evaluation of Streetlight data, where streetlight data can be compared to other measures. A first look at the Streetlight estimates is discussed below.
