How we can obtain road trafic density map values


#1

How can I obtain road trafic density map values ?
We are working on air polution in cities. Trafic is a major source of pollution. Trafic jams are causing more pollution.
We are trying to find ways to get road traffic density (using R or python) from public sources such as Google Map, Bing Map, Yandex Map, etc…
Thank you!

Hi :wave:

Can you give more details? What exactly are “road traffic density map values”?

Hi,
for example
https://www.google.com.tr/maps/@41.0579601,28.9614013,13.74z/data=!5m1!1e1
show real-time traffic. We want to read level of road traffic online. We want to use it for calculation of road emiission.

Thanks @huseyintoros

anyone @mpadge @andy_teucher @AndySouth know if this kind of data is publicly available?


#5

mostly not available, alas, because these kinda data have rather high commercial value. There a fine overview of some workable options via this StackOverflow Q. @robinlovelace is likely to know more.

I’m afraid I’m of no help on this one!
