Traffic Count Database System


MS2 Traffic Count Database System (TCDS) is a powerful cloud-based software solution that allows transportation planners and traffic engineers to map, manage and analyze vehicle traffic count data. Agencies can share data internally and can also provide a public-facing view of vetted data sets. Over 200 reports and graphs display up-to-the-minute metrics to support and guide agency decisions.

TCDS maps WIM, short count, and permanent count stations on an interactive map. Count datasets accepted through this solution include Traffic Volume, Speed, Vehicle Classification (axle and length-based), Per Vehicle Record, WIM, and gap. TCDS imports raw count data from equipment such as Diamond, HiStar, JAMAR, Miovision, Peek/Oriux, Wavetronix, and more. The system is designed to assist state DOTs with monthly Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) TMAS reporting as well as year-end HPMS submittals.

Count Scheduler

With thousands of traffic counts to perform annually, MS2's Count Scheduler helps an agency manage the workflow. The status of the counts and the teams can be reviewed at a high level view through the dashboard. The system’s flexibility allows an agency to organize the counts based on their business rules. An interactive calendar shows the counts assigned to each team member. A map tool allows staff to review the highly aggregated information for the count from due dates to the equipment necessary to perform the count.

Esri Roads and Highways

Many agencies are looking to Esri Roads and Highways (R & H) to manage their networks. R & H provides tools to track network changes over time and can provide an agency with a central place to store GIS data. MS2 has worked with Esri to design an extension to synchronize GIS and traffic data allowing both TDMS and R & H to focus on what they do best.

Event Response Dashboard

MS2 Event Response Dashboard extension (ERD) extends the functionality of MS2 Traffic Count Database System (TCDS) to allow users to view real-time traffic data for locations selected on the ERD map. When your agency determines the need to view real-time traffic volumes for events such as emergencies along an evacuation route or during a large sporting event, your traffic counters’ real-time mode can be turned on to provide information needed to enable safe travels.

Field Tool

Field Tool was developed as an extension of the TCDS module to transpose data from the field count equipment into the system and can be accomplished using an online or offline setting. An additional benefit is that it uses GPS coordinates to establish the location of the count equipment. Field Tool also integrates with the Roads and Highways and Count Scheduler extensions to provide greater flexibility in managing data through the system.
