The Transportation Secure Data Center (TSDC) provides free access to detailed transportation data from a variety of travel surveys and studies conducted across the nation.

Data include global positioning system (GPS) readings for millions of miles of travel, along with vehicle characteristics and survey participant demographics. NREL screens the initial data for quality control, translates each data set into a consistent format, and interprets the data for spatial analysis. NREL's processing routines add information on vehicle fuel economy and road grades and join data points to the road network.

The TSDC turned 10 in 2020! Learn about its dramatic growth and future enhancements.
