Members Have a LOT of Questions

How many cars go by my business every day? Where are the most dangerous accidents in our county? Can we use your boardroom for a video conference?

TMACOG’s staff replies to scores of questions and requests every year with maps, data, access to reports, aerial photos, and helpful advice. This service is part of the normal duties of our planners and administrative staff. For new members or people serving in new elected or administrative positions, here are some of the services that you can request as a benefit of TMACOG membership:


GIS data (such as traffic counts, road centerlines, and bicycle facilities etc.), useful to member jurisdictions and to economic development consultants.
Traffic information (car and truck counts, weight limits, pavement conditions, etc.) to help members plan projects or apply for funding (ex: Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority requested traffic information adjacent to the Port of Toledo).
Aerial imagery used by planners, surveyors and assessors.
“Good housekeeping” recommendations for municipal buildings with stormwater permits.
Assistance with accessing and using the online Traffic Count Database System. A frequent request from realtors, urban planners, and builders.
Years of raw crash data and crash diagrams for a specific location. This is valuable to consultants and planners considering new roads or applying for safety grants.
GIS data files and other technical data has been shared with Lucas County, Wood County, Monroe County, Toledo, Sylvania, Maumee, Fostoria, University of Toledo, Metroparks of the Toledo Area, Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority, TARTA, ODOT, and several local engineering firms.
TMACOG also acts as a data and information portal to put members in touch with the right source (federal or state agency) for data or other information they may need.
Census data and analysis identifies environmental justice areas, minority populations, areas where many people lack a vehicle, and other valuable planning data.














TMACOG can provide space and can help members facilitate meetings and events (ex: Lucas County Auditor’s office staff demonstrated the AREIS online real estate application at TMACOG).
ODOT and FHWA held a meeting with stakeholders to discuss areas with a high number of pedestrian and intersection-related crashes in Lucas County.
Ohio/Michigan GIS Users’ Group met at TMACOG in August for their quarterly meeting.






TMACOG can create maps for our members that do not have GIS capabilities at their office including watershed maps and various road maps.
Staff has created various maps for our members and associates including the Regional Growth Partnership, Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority, City of Toledo, and Toledo Design Center.
Staff can also provide copies of existing maps or provide large format printing of maps or display posters for members as requested.
Various maps for viewing and downloading are posted in the Transportation Map Gallery at
