Technology Group Project Receives Transportation Research Board Award
January 16, 2015Location: Sparks, Maryland
Maryland State Highway Administration's (SHA) Mobility &
Economy Dashboard has been announced as one of the winners of a
competition sponsored by the Transportation Research
Board's (TRB) Special Task Force on Data for Decisions and
Performance Measures. This project, developed by the JMT Technology
Group and a team of consultant partners, was featured at the TRB
94th Annual Meeting in Washington, DC.
The Mobility & Economy Dashboard is a public-facing web
application that presents key performance metrics through an
intuitive interface, giving users an opportunity to interact with
charts and maps to get key information about mobility in the state
of Maryland. This first-of-its-kind application is helping SHA make
real-time, data-driven decisions each day and provides public
visibility to SHA's projects, programs, and policies.
The TRB Annual Meeting covers all modes of transportation, with
presentations and workshops geared toward policy makers,
administrators, practitioners, researchers, and representatives of
government, industry, and academic institutions. TRB's mission is
to provide leadership in transportation innovation and progress
through research and information exchange.
