Who We Are
Modern Traffic Analytics
Founded in 2003, MS2 is a national leader in transportation data management and analysis and has the largest traffic count database in North America. More than 260 agencies in 31 US States, and Canada, including 23 state Departments of Transportation, are using MS2 software to manage their transportation data.
MS2 is a 100% American-owned and operated firm.
We pioneered the cloud-based Transportation Data Management System (TDMS) that is becoming the standard for traffic data analysis and management in the US. Providing a secure, scalable enterprise solution integrated with ArcGIS Server, Google Maps, and many other data providers, MS2 software includes multiple modules for managing transportation data ranging from traffic count, turning movement, weigh-in-motion, travel time, traffic crash, road sign, work order, asset management, and performance measurement.
The success of our business is based on our transportation planning and traffic engineering knowledge, our database and GIS expertise, and our ability to quickly implement our cloud-based off-the-shelf application for new clients.
