Development of an Interactive Freight Mobility and Security Database Structure for Research and Freight Modeling Applications

The Center for Advanced Transportation Systems Simulation (CATSS) has previous experience developing a framework for managing freight data electronically via a Web portal. The data management system CATSS developed allows the Florida Highway Patrol to maintain freight theft and recovery data and share that data with other law enforcement agencies over the Internet. The current project evaluated how a similar development could be applied to the management of freight mobility and security data. Through the development of a Web site, the potential usefulness for evaluating historical freight data was identified. Furthermore, the Web site has the versatility of an interactive data management and retrieval system. Freight and heavy truck data previously collected from a Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) funded project to evaluate Florida’s seaport intermodal traffic were used to test the application of the developed framework. Through an Internet Web site currently located on the CATSS Web server, users can view, search, and download freight and heavy truck data.
