Deep-dive tools that offer real solutions

The National Transportation Data & Analytics Solution dataset is delivered via an advanced analytics platform with deep-dive tools that provide powerful features and visualizations, enabling custom mapping and analysis.

Icon: Comprehensive Dataset

Unique and comprehensive dataset specifically designed for researchers, faculty, and students working in fields related to transportation, civil engineering, urban planning, and more.

Icon: Trusted Data Source

Trusted data source of the U.S. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)—relied upon to make investment and policy decisions that contribute to national performance goals. NPMRDS is an industry accepted dataset and uniquely addresses the specifications of the FHWA: there is no amputation of the data and clearly separates trucks from passenger vehicles data.

Icon: Enhanced Research

Includes 50 multi-disciplinary use cases from leading IEEE experts in transportation, mobility and related fields detailing how the platform can be used to facilitate and enhance research projects.
