This project will expand Chapel Hill’s Data program to incorporate Waze real-time traffic data.

Chapel Hill already uses the OpenDataSoft platform to share public data across the town government and with citizens. This project will allow to the town to quickly and seamlessly collect, harmonize and analyze real-time traffic data through the Waze Connected Citizens Program. The Waze Connected Citizen is a free data exchange program. The OpenDataSoft platform enables the two-way free data exchange between Waze and Chapel Hill and provides tools to analyze the data and compare it with other transportation data already offered by the town.
