Abstract/ Summary

Streetlight Insight® provides calibrated estimates of traffic volume for all roads across the United States and Canada, using large and anonymous location-based services collected from cellphone apps.1 The Maine Department of Transportation (MaineDOT) has a license to use these metrics for traffic planning and engineering studies, as well as for the operation and maintenance of road infrastructure. The University of Maine’s Margaret Chase Smith Policy center undertook a validation effort on behalf of MaineDOT to better understand the accuracy of StreetLight Insight’s vehicle volume metrics for monthly, daily and hourly time periods.
