bstabler/TransportationNetworks: Transportation Networks for Research

Transportation Networks is a networks repository for transportation research.

If you are developing algorithms in this field, you probably asked yourself
more than once: where can I get good data? The purpose of this site is to
provide an answer for this question! This site currently contains several examples
for the traffic assignment problem. Suggestions and additional data are always welcome.

Many of these networks are for studying the Traffic Assignment Problem, which is one of the most
basic problems in transportation research. Theoretical background can be found in
“The Traffic Assignment Problem – Models and Methods” by Michael Patriksson, VSP 1994,
as well as in many other references.

This repository is an update to Dr. Hillel Bar-Gera’s TNTP.
As of May 1, 2016, data updates will be made only here, and not in the original website.

Each individual network and related files is stored in a separate folder. There
are a number of ways to download the networks and related files:

  • Click on a file, click view as Raw, and then save the file
  • Clone the repository to your computer using the repository’s clone URL. This is done with a Git
    tool such as TortoiseGit. Cloning will download the
    entire repository to your computer.

There are two ways to add a network:

  • Fork the repo
    • Create a GitHub account if needed
    • Fork (copy) the repo to your account
    • Make changes such as adding a new folder and committing your data
    • Issue a pull request for us to review the changes and to merge your changes into the master
  • Create an issue, which will notify us. We will then reply to coordinate adding your network to the site.

Make sure to create a README in Markdown for your
addition as well. Take a look at some of the existing README files in the existing network folders to see what
is expected.

All data is currently donated. Data sets are for academic research purposes only.
Users are fully responsible for any results or conclusions obtained by using these data sets.
Users must indicate the source of any dataset they are using in any publication that relies
on any of the datasets provided in this web site. The Transportation Networks for Research team is not
responsible for the content of the data sets. Agencies, organizations, institutions and
individuals acknowledged in this web site for their contribution to the datasets are not
responsible for the content or the correctness of the datasets.

This effort is also associated with the TRB Network Modeling Committee. If you are interested in contributing in a more significant role, please get in touch. Thanks!

Any documented text-based format is acceptable. Please include a README.MD that describes the files,
conventions, fields names, etc. It is best to use formats that can be easily read in with technologies
