Traffic Information Management System
Managing Traffic Counts in New York City
For the New York City Department of Transportation (NYC DOT), Cambridge Systematics is developing the Traffic Information Management System (TIMS), a centralized repository of traffic count data for the City of New York. When complete, the system will be used for count scheduling, submission, data review, and dissemination via the state Freedom of Information Law (FOIL). Count requests can be submitted by DOT or third parties via an interface that helps identify existing counts (or already-scheduled counts) that may meet a particular need, reducing the cost and delay associated with redundant counts. The system enables counts to be submitted electronically by contractors and then reviewed, edited, and published by DOT staff, preserving both the original count data and any adjustments that might have been used for a particular traffic study, and ensuring that data are expeditiously made available to all potential users. The software is designed to easily incorporate and integrate with other NYC GIS data and resources.
