Describes the on-going development of an operational, prototype real-time traffic monitoring and analysis system (RTMAS) whose purpose is to record and warn of the build-up of significant urban population evacuations in times of threat. In tracking an evacuation build-up, RTMAS is being developed to collect and cumulate net traffic movements (i.e. net regional outflows), building up a quantitative picture of the timing and directions of an evacuation. This is information not currently available in any other form, other than data obtained from very small, and increasingly expensive, post-evacuation household interviews
