4 datasets

DVRPC Traffic Count Viewer

Traffic Count Viewer is an online mapping application, which users can use to explore traffic count reports in different locations within the Delaware Valley, including Philadelphia. Users search by location (address, city, zip code, or place name) to view point features on the interactive mapping visualization of traffic records. Clicking on a point of interest or grouping multiple points on the map yields traffic count information tables, which includes: Date of Counnt ; DVRPC File # ; Type ; Annual Average Daily Traffic (AADT) ; Municipality ; Route Number ; Road Name ; Count Direction ; and From/To Locations, as well as a link to the detailed (hourly) report. Data tables are exportable as .CSV and detailed reports are available for export in multiple formats (including basic .doc and .rtf outputs.) Traffic count data is collected by the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission and other agencies.

DVRPC's Connections 2040 Choices & Voices

Choices & Voices version 2.1 allows you to participate in developing a vision for growth and development in Greater Philadelphia between now and 2040. Identify your preferred development pattern, and then select regional funding levels and major transportation projects that you would like to see happen over the next 27 years. This application is crowdsourced, so you’ll be able to compare your scenario to the vision created by all other participants.

This version of Choices & Voices has been updated to correspond with the recently amended Connections 2040 Plan for Greater Philadelphia. This amendment reflects transportation increased funding levels in Pennsylvania from the passage of Act 89 of 2013.

Choices & Voices was a winner of the U.S. DOT 2014 Data Innovation Challenge.

DVRPC's Equity Through Access Map Toolkit

As part of the Equity Through Acesss project, DVRPC created the ETA Map Toolkit and Priority Score. This interactive web-based tool demonstrates concentrations of need and opportunity, as well as disparities in access to essential health services like hospitals, health clinics, recreational spaces, senior centers, and more in the Greater Philadelphia region. Users can view layers representing different datasets including distributions of vulnerable populations, the locations of essential services, and areas where transit access is low. These three variables were combined to create the Priority Score map, which visualizes areas where new public transit connections could be made, changed, or improved to bridge access gaps in the future.

Philly Freight Finder

Freight Data Portal for the Delaware Valley.

The Delaware Valley is a premier freight transportation gateway. It possesses one of the world’s busiest freshwater ports; rail freight service from two large Class I railroads and 12 smaller short lines; an airport with expanding international cargo services; an excellent highway and connector network; and numerous rail and port intermodal terminals.

The performance of this extraordinary network helps promote and support a thriving economy. PhillyFreightFinder is a resource for exploring and tracking the Philadelphia-Camden-Trenton regional freight network.

Open Freight App is a project by the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) to share with regional and national transportation planning partners the framework that is the basis for the PhillyFreightFinder web mapping and data application. Through this effort, DVRPC hopes that county planning agencies, metropolitan planning organizations and state departments of transportation, and economic development agencies can leverage this framework to further their efforts in making freight transportation data public. By utilizing the Open Freight App framework, rather than building from scratch, planning agencies can focus their time and resources on the development of data sets that can serve to improve the access to information on freight facilities and their role in economic development and transportation across the country. Open Freight App would serve as a self-hosted solution to offer these datasets to other planners, economic developers, public officials, decision-makers and the general public.
