This document describes a study which developed and tested methodological components needed to compare satellite data with ground counts. The study was designed for three sites in Columbus, Ohio. Ground count data collection was coordinated to an aerial photography mission. The aircraft data were processed to simulate 1-m resolution satellite data. Specific objectives of the research included: 1) process aerial photographs; 2) use the imagery to count and classify vehicles on highway segments; 3) determine traffic measures from the imagery and ground-based data; and, 4) compare the aerial-based and ground-based traffic measures.
