Research Reports

ITS Backbone

Description: In this brief report, we provide a description of the activities in each of the areas to which the Backbone contributes, and we provide supporting statistics for each of these contributions. The form of these statistics varies by application area: (1) potential viewers, in the case of TrafficTV, (2) page views, in the case of MyBus, (3) data stream use, in the case of Busview, (4) number of downloads, in the case of the Self Describing Data (SDD) Toolkit and, (5) use of the Web services.

The ITS Backbone has been financially supported by WSDOT to provide a level playing field to distribute detailed real-time and historical data to the public, private, and research sectors.
