The development of computer-based technology is an opportunity for optimizing research. Many knowledge mapping applications are available, one of which is Publish or Perish (PoP). The application can collect databases from various journal sources, both paid and open source. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the use of PoP to analyze the development of research conducted by the Author in a particular field. The data and case studies were from Indonesian transportation optimization researchers with data sources from Google Scholar. The discussion results show that the PoP application can be used to find the citation metric numbers owned by the Author. Visualizations are presented as impact metrics, including h-index and others. Information on citation numbers includes publication years, citation years, papers, cites per year, cites per paper, cites per Author, papers per Author, Author per paper, h-index, g-index, hI, norm, and hI, annual.
