In this paper, we review trajectory data-based traffic flow studies that have been conducted over the last 15 years. Our purpose is to provide a roadmap for readers who have an interest in the latest developments of traffic flow theory that have been stimulated by the availability of trajectory data. We first highlight the critical role of trajectory data (especially the next generation simulation (NGSIM) trajectory dataset) in the recent history of traffic flow studies. Then, we summarize new
