Analyzing and Visualizing Trip Distributions with Web Maps
Track: Highways and Roads
Authors: Amy Smith
The 'Dynamic Trips' tool is a web map used by planners and city managers to provide planned land use changes and view estimated resulting automobile trip distributions. The tool also highlights roadway intersections that may benefit from signalization, based on user inputs and analysis results. The application was developed by planners, transportation modelers, and GIS specialists using travel demand forecasts in conjunction with Python-based Geoprocessing services.
