1 Welcome to FHWA’s TMAS version 2.0 Demonstration
Presented by FHWA Office of Highway Policy Information Traffic Monitoring and Surveys Division Steven Jessberger – TMAS Program Manager

2 Plan for today’s webinar
Travel Monitoring Analysis System schedule TMAS QC process and features Reporting in TMAS 2.0 Live Demo Questions and Answers MAP 21 website:

3 Travel Monitoring Analysis System (TMAS) version 2.0
Schedule Version 1.0 released August 2007 replaced Traffic Volume Trends Version 1.5 released June 2009 Version 2.0 State beta tested April/May 2012 Version 2.0 planned release September 2012 (TMAS 2.0 will replace VTRIS)

4 TMAS Background What is your TMAS background?
Have you ever used TMAS before? Are you familiar with current TMAS version 1.5 features? Is there any specific issue or concern you need answered?

5 TMAS 2.0 Webinar Training in August and September 2012
Volume Data QC Training – Danny Jenkins Aug 27 from 10:00 am to 11:30 am (est) Sept 5 from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm (est) Sept 10 from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm (est) Classification Data QC Training – Steven Jessberger Aug 28 from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm (est) Aug 30 from 9:00 am to 10:30 am (est) Sept 7 from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm (est) Weight Data QC Training – David Jones Aug 30 from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm (est) Sept 6 from 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm (est) Sept 24 from 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm (est) Reports/Exporting/Deleting Training – Steven Jessberger Sept 4 from 10:00 am to 11:30 am (est) Sept 14 from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm (est)

6 TMAS 2.0 QC Process Overview
All data processed by site by month and not by state by month Station records will need to be up to date (July) All QC checks are settable by site or by using the national system values – only for your State All data will be kept that follows the TMG format* New – data deletion feature – only for your State New – data export feature – open to all states Site by month allows for easily adding the sites that may come in late Station records – Classification system for Vehicle Classification is a required field. Year Established will be a required field, Lat / Long very important, # lanes for volume, class and weight required fields No more purging data that is odd – all data will be kept if it is in the TMG format!! * Except TMG weight data that exceeds 25 axles. Weight records with 13 to 24 axles is kept but not QC’s, is immediately put in a special super large vehicle database.

7 TMAS 2.0 QC Process Overview - continued
Reports open to all states – dynamic search Upload only thru TMAS 2.0 – no more FTP sites, ed data, CD’s, or DVD’s Some station fields go from optional to required – dynamic station QC All Data open to all States – FHWA is promoting sharing of data, State-State Volume by the 20th each month Classification by the 25th each month Weight data submitted Quarterly (min) with monthly preferred

8 TMAS QC Process Guiding Principles
Collect data once – process correctly and use it many times!! TMAS is used to sort data into those records that are suspect vs. records that pass all QC checks

9 TMAS 2.0 Station Information
New Required Fields Year Established # Lanes for Volume, Class and/or Weight If a class or higher site – field 16 Classification System for Vehicle Classification HPMS Sample Type (Y/N) National Highway System (Y/N) Primary Sensor Latitude and Longitude Anything but 0 for # lanes then must have other criteria for data type filled in. Same for HPMS

10 TMAS QC Checks for Volume
Every DOW check (7 days required) 24 hours of data check (24 hours required) 7 consecutive zero’s check Any zero check with boundary of 50 vehicles Directional splits check (tightened) MADT check (tightened) Maximum number of vehicles per hour per lane check (new)

11 Volume Program Manager
Traffic Volume Trends Danny Jenkins Volume Program Manager

12 TMAS QC Checks for Classification (axle or length)
Maximum % Class by Direction for any day Historical % Class vs. Input Class % check by day (same DOW) Example: Historical 8 weeks % for passenger cars is 64% with a tolerance of 8% would give you a range of 56% to 72%. If 61% was the daily passenger car % for the incoming data then the site passed for PC’s. States will set this tolerance in the software

13 TMAS QC Checks for Weight
GVW vs sum of axle weights check Any Axle weight range check Any axle spacing range check Sum of axle spacing’s by class range check Minimum number of axles by class check Steering Axle Weight Average (SAWA) check SAWA extreme min/max range check Average Tandem Spacing (ATS) check ATS extreme min/max range check All current QC checks in VTRIS have been incorporated into TMAS. Due to the need of good quality WIM data we have added some calibration checks to help us better know the quality of the data so the data can be used in more applications. (MEPDG as one such case)

14 Weight Records – special case
Vehicle with axles – no QC Vehicles with 25 or more axles purged Dummy (no vehicle -1) records kept but left as null entries

15 TMAS 2.0 SAWA Check

16 TMAS 2.0 SAWA Check

17 TMAS ATS Check

18 TMAS ATS Check

19 TMAS 2.0 Reports Volume VOL2 – State TVT Report VOL3 – Station by Hour
VOL4 – MADT by Month with AADT by Station/State (new) VOL5 – Volume data upload by State and Month (new)

20 TMAS 2.0 Reports (continued)
Classification CLS1 – Class by Day by Hour by Site (new) CLS2 – Class by Station with no data in weight columns CLS3 – Class by Station Monthly by Day (new) CLS5 – Station multi-year by month (new) CLS6 – Class by HPMS6 vehicle types by State (new)
