Led by INTERCEP founding director Bill Raisch, this project aims to adapt an information sharing and situational awareness technology platform currently used by INTERCEP’s Metropolitan Resilience Network to support transportation data sharing and stakeholder engagement in New York City and each of the C2SMART consortium member cities. This platform is designed to help users understand their larger operating environment, identify risks in that environment, and make informed decisions during disruptions using the assembled data.
The platform could potentially be used by researchers, as well as public agencies and private stakeholders, to identify key transportation and infrastructure issues in their cities and evaluate potential solutions to build organizational resilience. It can also facilitate information sharing and help educate and train potential users on the applications of transportation and infrastructure data, including data generated through C2SMART’s activities.
The primary deliverables for this project are dashboards for New York, El Paso, Seattle and Newark that contain real-time information focused on operational transportation data and other relevant information, such as weather, social media feeds, and rail/subway status. The researchers will solicit feedback from the Principal Investigators on other C2SMART projects to fine-tune the content, presentation and functionality of the platform.
The dashboards offer a visual way to present data simply and effectively, making them a potentially useful tool for involving typically underrepresented communities in discussions about transportation.
