Traffic data in PiinPoint shows Average Annual Traffic Data (AADT), sourced from third party providers including local municipalities and government organizations such as the Department of Transportation.
Average Annual Daily Traffic is calculated by surveying an area for a sample period (typically a 7 day week) for 24 hours each day, and then estimating what the annual traffic would be there with error and fluctuation factors considered. That result is divided by the number of days in a year (365) to identify what the estimated average traffic per day is at an intersection/point. Each municipality or third party provider uses their own technique or sensor type for the estimation.
