Mission: The mission of the Data and Information Systems section is to advance the application of data and information systems to address transportation needs. Section activities should advance the state of the practice and build awareness of data and technology applications and their value for transportation practitioners, researchers, and decision makers. The Section achieves this mission by providing focused opportunities for collaboration and support for its member committees.

Strategic Goals:

  • Sustain data and information system programs for transportation planning and decision support

  • address critical and crosscutting issues (section-level appropriate)

  • support the mission of the TAC, POG, and section committees
