Join Chad Tucker, short range planning manager with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), and Michael Dannehy, pre-sales consultant at TomTom, in a discussion on leveraging historic traffic data to improve highway safety and operations.

Under a state mandate, VDOT embarked on a six-year improvement program  to enhance highway safety and operations throughout the I-95/I-64 corridor. Through an independent highway and traffic safety study, VDOT determined issues within the I-95/I-64 corridor that posed potential risks to motor vehicle operators. (More on the case study (pdf), more on the data.)
 
TomTom (formerly Tele Atlas), a provider of GIS historic traffic data and mapping solutions, partnered with VDOT in April 2012 to support the VDOT highway safety project. 
 
Tucker will share the ways VDOT used TomTom’s historic traffic data to help with its highway infrastructure planning. Dannehy will describe TomTom’s historic traffic capabilities and functionality, as well as the value proposition for state DOTs in using TomTom’s historic traffic data for infrastructure planning.
