Delivering resources to save time, lives, and money

Adventures in Crowdsourcing: Incident Management Tools (EDC5 Webinar Series)


Crowdsourcing turns transportation system users into real-time sensors on system performance, providing low-cost, high-quality data on traffic operations, roadway conditions, travel patterns, and more. This webinar features presentations on a variety of applications for traffic incident management (TIM) that make use of crowdsourced data. Applications include those both developed in-house and provided by third parties.

Target Audience
State and local departments of transportation, TMC operators, and TIM partners (e.g., law enforcement, fire, EMS, and towing)

Learning Objectives
Learn about commercially available tools for supporting TIM functions
Learn how agencies combine crowdsourced data and other data sources to support TIM
