This forum will be exploring how data could be used more effectively to make transportation decisions, from concept to planning to operations. How can data be combined to paint a clearer picture of the problems? The CATT Lab has produced a number of innovative tools to help users' to see a problem, and then drill down through huge amounts of data, to explore the root causes. Please join us to explore together just how more useful your data could be! Through this interactive session, attendees will explore how a number of data visualizations could be used to solve current challenges, share personal insights and explore potential applications by the transportation agencies. This would be useful to almost any planner, regardless of sub-discipline.
