Tracking Cumulative Travels
Welcome to Travel Mapping
Travel Mapping is a collaborative project implemented and maintained by a group of travel enthusiasts who enjoy tracking their cumulative highway travels. This site allows its users to submit lists of highway segments they've traveled on the highway systems that have been included in the project. Those lists are then imported into the project's database, to be included along with other users' stats and maps.
Travel Mapping Status (motd)
Travel Mapping is operating normally, to the best of our knowledge.
The processing of emails to the list submission address has been changed, and for a time, seemed to have solved the problem of some people's files not getting through. If it does work, you will get back a "message held for moderation" message back the first time you send an update after this configuration change, but that's normal. Legitimate submissions will then be approved. If you continue to have trouble getting your .list update through the standard channel, please feel free to send a private message to Jim on the forum to get an alternate email address to which you can send your updates. You should get a brief reply acknowledging each submission, so if you don't, it means it didn't get through. Efforts continue to resolve this problem in a better way.
Travel Mapping is now on Twitter. Follow us at @TravelMapping.
Travel Mapping Highway Data
Travel Mapping currently includes highway data for 162 "active" systems. Active systems are those which we believe are accurate and complete, and for which any changes that affect users will be noted in the highway data updates table. An additional 40 systems are in "preview" status, which means they are substantially complete, but still undergoing final revisions. These may still undergo significant changes without notification. 20 more are in development but are not yet complete. Active system encompass 19,321 routes for 662,333 miles of "clinchable" highways in active systems, and that total is 22,958 routes for 851,018 miles when preview systems are included.
How to Participate
Anyone can submit their travels to be included in the site. Please see the information in the project forum for how to create and submit your data.
Once your data is in the system, you will be listed on the main traveler stats page, and you can see a summary of your travels on your user page. Click around on the various links and table entries to find more ways to see your travels, both as tabular statistics and plotted on maps.
Some experienced users volunteer to help the project. If this interests you, start by reporting problems with existing highway data. Those who have learned the project's structure and highway data rules and guidelines can help greatly by providing review of new highway systems in development. Highly experienced users can learn how to plot new highway systems under the guidance of experienced contributors. Again, see the project forum for more information.
What's New with Highway Data?
Highway data is updated almost daily as corrections are made and progress is made on systems in development. When a highway system is deemed correct and complete to the best of our knowledge, it becomes "active". Here are the newest systems to become active, with their activation dates:
