Getting Better Data for Better Decisions: Improving Performance Measures and Outcomes
data is of critical importance, but what we do with data is often the key to
making a difference. This webinar explores the current state of the practice of
bicycle and pedestrian data collection, delivers an overview of research on
automated counting technologies, and provides examples of using data to reveal unexpected
patterns and connections in facility use. The session includes a preview of the
findings of NCHRP 07-19, "Methods and Technologies for Collecting Pedestrian
and Bicycle Volume Data,” and thought-provoking case studies from Arlington County, Virginia (a leader in the national effort
to develop better methods for collecting and using bicycle and pedestrian
counts to understand travel behavior) that highlight the
use of data to calculate exposure data for safety projects, argue for speed
reduction, negotiate for pedestrian-friendly development, and more. Gather colleagues, clients and decision makers to view this webinar and begin planning
your new data collection program.
Speakers: Tony Hull, Toole Design Group; David Patton, Arlington County, Virginia;
and Frank Proulx, SafeTREC, Berkeley.
