The overall objective of this project was to understand the use and impacts of camera images and other “unverified” displays of information that can be interpreted by travelers, especially when compared to the use of “verified” reports such as traffic maps, incident reports, and other information that is formulated and/or verified by agencies. Results from this project could be used by agencies to help make decisions about what types of information to display and whether or not to increase/decrease current displays (e.g. add more cameras for display to the public). The focus of the project was on traveler information websites hosted by transportation agencies. A public survey, analysis of web usage statistics, and interviews with agency staff were used to inform project findings.
The Use of Impacts of Camera Images and Other Displays of Traveler Information project was presented at the following:
