MaSSEMIT (Massachusetts Split-Screen Emissions Mapping & Information Tool) was developed for consideration in the 37 Billion Mile Data Challenge. This application is intended to inform transportation planning and policy decisions, with the ultimate goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from vehicle use in Massachusetts. Using data provided by the Massachusetts Vehicle Census and other sources, a series of town-level metrics have been calculated dealing with issues such as CO2 emissions, fuel use, vehicle types, and miles driven. Using the split-screen mapping interface, users can compare patterns between any two of these metrics at a given time, potentially gaining insight into what factors may influence one another, and which communities might best be targeted for improving transportation efficiency and sustainability.
