The Grand Forks – East Grand Forks MPO contacted ATAC with regards to extending the use of existing traffic detection cameras for traffic data collection and archival. The City of Grand Forks currently has approx. 43 intersections where Autoscope cameras are being used for traffic signal actuation purposes. More intersections within the network are being updated to have the same camera-based detection capabilities. Additional functions of these Autoscope cameras include traffic data collection.

In anticipation of these types of applications working with NDDOT, DOTSC/ATAC have developed capabilities to provide web services for databases and web-based applications to report on those databases. With these capabilities in place and the potential for other jurisdictions and the NDDOT benefiting from this type of traffic data reporting application, a database design and web-based reporting application were initiated for development with this project.
