ABJ30(2): TRB Computational Transportation and Society (CT&S) Joint Subcommittee

Co-Chairs: Piyushimita (Vonu) Thakuriah, University of Illinois at Chicago (vonu-pt@uic.edu)  and Harvey J. Miller, University of Utah (harvey.miller@geog.utah.edu)

Lead Committee:
ABJ30: Urban Transportation Data and Information Systems


Partner Committees:
ABJ60: Geographic Information Science and Applications
ABJ95: Visualization in Transportation

Mission Statement: The mission of the joint subcommittee is to stimulate research on computational, design and policy innovations needed to integrate transportation to the rapidly transforming ubiquitous information society. Our work will lead to technologies for the generation, analysis and visualization of innovative geospatial “Big Data” as well as to models of information use, governance and design.

2013 TRB Annual Meeting Workshop

Big Data Informatics: Innovations in Mining Structured and Unstructured Information for Mobility Decision-Making

Sunday, January 13, 2013 9:00AM - 12:00PM 
Workshop Data and Information Technology, Planning and Forecasting, Society

Piyushimita (Vonu) Thakuriah, University of Illinois, Chicago, presiding
Harvey J. Miller, University of Utah, presiding
Sponsored By:
Urban Transportation Data and Information Systems (ABJ30)
Geographic Information Science and Applications (ABJ60)

The convergence of pervasive sensing with location-aware and social media technologies, along with infrastructure-based sensors, will lead to innovative “big data” in urban transportation. These data can be structured or unstructured, ranging from GPS trajectories to text, video, still images, and others. The workshop focuses on data management, information extraction, mobility mining, analysis of user-generated content, and multisensor fusion and mobility information services that can be built
