Spatial relationship between workplace and residence has significant impacts on traffic congestion and the quality of life. To better understand the spatial and temporal dynamics of commuting patterns in the region, Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) conducted the spatial and temporal analysis, using various big data including land use, population, employment, business, origin-destination matrix, etc. To automate and expedite the workflow, SCAG utilized ArcGIS, Python and SAS.
