A major objective of the TRB Committee on Transportation Data and Information Systems is to explore the cross-cutting issues of determining data needs and collecting, processing and disseminating data that affect the entire transportation community. A most often recognized institutional problem involving transportation data is the lack of a stable, official organization to inventory transportation data resources, monitor changes in those resources and provide the data user community with a forum for expressing its needs to the providers of transportation data on a comprehensive basis. Transportation analysts can contribute to the resolution of this problem by working to provide a perspective on the problems of supplying adequate information resources to help close the gap between information needs and resources available.
