TrackATruck dataset

Overview >

TrackATruck is a new generation of heavy-duty truck emission inventory. The model is developed based on high-precision truck trajectory data, and the record of the underlying data in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei area has an amount of 9 billion per year. The TrackATruck emission inventory dataset currently provides gridded emissions data (0.01°×0.01°) in 2016, which covers species of NOx, CO, PM10, PM2.5 and CO2. The spatial distribution of gridded emissions data is shown as follows:

The TrackATruck dataset is developed and maintained by Tsinghua University. The data of truck trajectory comes from the national road freight vehicle public supervision and service platform. If you have any questions about the use of TrackATruck data, please contact Prof. Huan Liu (
