Transportation is the backbone of civilization and the reason for our economic prosperity for the past 50-plus years. There's serious money in our transportation infrastructure, research, policy, data collection, and, yes, software and other IT systems. This article gives a high-level introduction to visualization research in the transportation community, discusses research opportunities, and encourages the computer graphics community to get involved. It briefly covers transportation data visualization, wide-area real-time simulation, massively multiplayer online games, public involvement, and even virtual design and construction.
