Chaparral Systems Corporation provides TRADAS users with a mapping component that displays visual maps of the traffic station locations. As highlighted in the graphic below, traffic site locations are displayed on the left, mapped site locations are viewed in the center, and count site information as well as volume data graphs are provided on the right. Annual Average Daily Traffic (AADT) volumes are displayed in the black outlined white box in the map below. In the lower right-hand graph, the total hourly volumes are plotted in red, total hourly volumes in the primary direction are plotted in light blue, and the total hourly volumes in the secondary direction are plotted in green.
There are a number of TRADAS mapping features provided in the software. These features include the ability to customize displays, filter by site location, display reports, view traffic volume trending graphs, and much more. Highlighted mapping features are provided below:

Selecting the AADT/byRange marker type provides the TRADAS user with a legend showing volume groups that can be turned on and off by selecting items to display within the check box. In the sample legend below, TRADAS users can display traffic volume sites with a volume of 1 to 999 by clicking the yellow marker type check box.
The standard TRADAS mapping display features comes with a google-based map. However, clients can choose to use customized "in-house" maps. Chaparral Systems Corporation staff will customize the mapping display based on the client's needs.

To run this report, the user simply clicks on the "Generate PDF" button and a pdf Site Group Report is generated. This report contains the name of the site group as well as all the sites that are a part of that specific site group.
