There are many other features contained within the TRADAS product. The text below describes a few more features but for more information on a comprehensive list of TRADAS product features, please request further information by sending e-mail to email@example.com or call 1-877-230-2974 ext. 1103.
The system supports up to eight different site identifier types used for site name resolution purposes which is know as the site identification or naming convention. Each identifier may have up to eight different data references for the same site. For example, a county, route, and mile-point identifier would be a single site identifier/reference type.

The system also provides automatic association of raw data files to sites, lanes, and collection methods. Configuring sites to handle these automatic associations requires the creation of a binding rule. Once a binding rule is created, associations (such as a site that has 4 lanes should have 2 lanes in one direction and 2 in the other direction) for all counts that follow agency count identification rules are automatically applied. The system allows a user to create a “Binding Rule” that executes while loading and processing data that specifically binds the raw data file immediately to the given site location and lane as defined by the binding rule for that site. When future files are run for that same site and if the automated process based on agency count identification rules fails, all the binding rules in the system are checked and used if applicable.
The system allows channels of data to be bound to lanes, to a single direction, or to the entire roadway. At the time of binding a channel to a road element, it is also bound to a bin scheme and a collection method (AASHTO-based Continuous or AASHTO-based Short-term) regardless of binding method. Binding is completed before all count-resolution and most quality control processes allowing the system to execute quality control checks that include context specific data checks. The site database records the number of lanes in each direction to allow the validation of the count channel mapping.
