OTD Partnership Launches Traffic Count Application

Thu May 03, 2018 - Southeast Edition #10

Georgia Department of Transportation's Office of Transportation Data (OTD) provides traffic data, products and services that help local governments and the public make data-driven transportation decisions concerning traffic patterns and flow, design of new roads, traffic signage or signalization needs and a number of other determinations.

On April 2, OTD launched a new traffic data application that combines traffic data collection, analysis and presentation services into a single application.

The Traffic Analysis and Data Application (TADA) is a result of a partnership between traffic engineering and transportation planning firm Southern Traffic Services Inc. and traffic data analysis software provider Drakewell Inc.

“The future of traffic data collection, analysis and reporting has arrived,” said Georgia DOT State Transportation Data Administrator Paul Tanner. “TADA provides advanced features and improved product support for less cost to meet today's dynamic traffic data requirements.”

TADA is the latest effort in OTD's continuing commitment to provide the right data, at the right time, and with the right quality to customers. The TADA application, which replaces the GeoCounts traffic data solution, offers a new, easy to understand interface with advanced features including detailed searches, selection of multiple sites, and multiple export options, according to the company.

Features of TADA:

  • Traffic count collection stations: continuous count/permanent (24/7/365), weigh-in-motion and short term counts/portable (48 hours)
  • Interactive map interface
  • Graphs, charts and tabular visualizations
  • Summary data reports
  • Standard time interval selections
