Pedestrian infrastructure, public transit and land-use: A GIS approach
Track: Public Transit
Authors: Smita Sharma
A network of side-walks and cross-walks was developed using data (co-ordinates) import function in Arc GIS. Two more layers containing bus stations with their estimated catchment areas and land-use were also created. An overlay analysis was performed to combine three datasets into one (transit, side-walk, cross-walk and land-use). Then selections were made based on certain attribute values that match the criteria specified for an available infrastructure for walk to and from public transit.
