This report describes the data and methods used to generate the interactive Minneapolis-St. Paul Transportation Happiness Map at http://maps.umn.edu/transportation-happiness. The map illustrates spatiotemporal differences in travelers' happiness ratings on the streets and roads in the Minneapolis- St. Paul metropolitan region. Map users can interactively explore street and road segments that are associated with positive and/or negative emotional experiences based upon their interested travel modes and travel time periods. For policy makers who are interested in improving people's transportation happiness, the map provides important insights on road and street segments that are in need of closer investigations for future improvements.
