Using GIS to Analyze ITS Traffic Count Data
Track: Statistical Analysis
Authors: Lixin Huang
Analyzing ITS traffic count data from ITS can tell traffic engineers what the traffic pattern is at a specific road segment during a specific time period. GIS Spatial Statistics Tools can be used to do this of analysis. This paper discusses how to take advantage of the Hot Spot Analysis tool to identify the time period when the high traffic volume occurs from different traffic count data. The method can also be used to analyze the other traffic patterns, such as speed and lane distribution.
