Seven-day Traffic Forecasts

A new service will begin predicting California traffic conditions seven days in advance.

"Alongside the weather forecast, viewers of KXTV News 10 in Sacramento can now get 3D animations of their local road network, showing not only where the gridlock is but also where it is likely to be.

The system, called Beat-the-Traffic, is the first public traffic forecasting system that combines real-time traffic density and speed with historical trends on major routes.

The level of congestion depends largely on the time of day and day of week, and often patterns are repeated through the seasons."

A demonstration video graphic, in MPEG format is also available.
