Travel Monitoring Analysis System

updated 7 days ago.
The Travel Monitoring Analysis System (TMAS) dataset is as of June 6, 2017, and is part of the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT)/Bureau of Transportation Statistics's (BTS's) National Transportation Atlas Database (NTAD). The data included in the GIS Traffic Stations Version database have been collected by the FHWA from the State DOTs. Location referencing information was derived from State offices of Transportation The attributes on the point elements of the database are used by FHWA for its Travel Monitoring and Analysis System and by State DOTs. The attributes for these databases have been intentionally limited to location referencing attributes since the core station description attribute data are contained within the Station Description Tables (SDT). here is a separate Station Description Table (SDT) for each of the station types. The attributes in the Station Description Table correspond with the Station Description Record found in Chapter 6 of the latest Traffic Monitoring Guide. The SDT contains the most recent stations available for each state and station type. This table was derived from files provided UTCTR by FHWA. The Station Description Table can be linked to the station shapefile via the STNNKEY field. Some station where not located in the US, and were beyond available geographic extents causing display problems. These were moved to Lat and Long 0,0. This is in recognition that the locations of these stations where in error, but were moved to a less obtusive area.

<p></p>For access to direct download of the latest Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS) and All Roads Network Of Linear Referenced Data (ARNOLD) datasets, please go to <a href="https://www.bts.gov/geography/geospatial-portal/NTAD-direct-download" target="_blank">https://www.bts.gov/geography/geospatial-portal/NTAD-direct-download</a>.<div><br /><div>FHWA released the latest version of HPMS as of October 1, 2017, which represents the highway system as of 2016 calendar year. The Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS) provides data that reflects the extent, use, condition, and performance of the public roads in the United States. It consists of the All Road Network of Linear Referenced Data (ARNOLD) and Section Data which is the attribution. ARNOLD and Sections are linked though linear referencing. This data is analytical for the purpose of supporting transportation program, funding and policy decisions at a national level. Operational applications such as navigation and routing may take advantage of HPMS with the understanding that it represents the average and not “real-time” of the system.</div></div>
