Activating Big Data for Mode Split and Active Transportation Planning
Monday, August 26, 2019
Noon - 1 p.m.
CM | 1 #9183988
The need for better bicycle and pedestrian and data is always a topic that is cited by engineers and planners to understand where to focus infrastructure investments. Moreover, bicycle and pedestrian data collection can be expensive and time intensive. How can big data be used to understand travel patterns and identify the best corridors to focus investments for different modes? Which corridors are already important travel pathways for pedestrians and cyclists? How can big data be used to understand origins and destinations and what are the demographics of the people traveling by active modes. What vehicle trips are most likely to convert to other modes if new options are introduced? Join the webinar to learn how big data from billions of LBS and GPS points and machine learning can be used to quickly derive several key bicycle and pedestrian transportation analytics.
