Hi, I am also interested in traffic data extraction. I tried signing up with my visa debit card but it didn’t accept the card info do I need to use a credit card? Could I get some assistance please? I am considering the possibility of using the traffic data to model travel times using network analysis in ArcGIS but I wanted to see a sample of the data available through this application. I would appreciate some feedback on this please
