Visualizations are tools for analyzing, reporting, and communicating the complexities of a transportation system and for synthesizing these intricacies into presentations that can be easily understood.

The TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program's NCHRP Synthesis 584: Visualization of Highway Performance Measures documents current practices and methods used by state departments of transportation (DOTs) for visualizing highway performance measures and their use of visualization techniques for communication and decision support.

Supplemental to the publication is a Presentation of Visualization Examples.
