Developing a Transportation, Emissions, and Health Datahub
Andrew Birt, Texas A&M Transportation Institute
The CARTEEH datahub addresses the need for a systematic, cross-disciplinary approach to understanding and integrating transportation and health datasets. This report documents the development of the datahub and includes a technical review of off-the-shelf software solutions for implementing a datahub, as well as a description of highlevel goals describing how the datahub should affect CARTEEH research. Based on the technical review and goal statements, the research team implemented a custom datahub using modular software components. The implemented datahub is based on concepts of effectively communicating existing data and other research products within a collaborative research center, and valuing and reusing all research products.
