Getting Better Data for Better Decisions: Improving Performance Measures and Outcomes

Collecting 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.
