TransPed is an interactive GIS based tool designed to assist in the planning and analysis of pedestrian and bicycle transportation. The objective of TransPed is to combine a comprehensive bank of data with applicable analysis features to create a holistic tool accessible to users of all abilities. The tool includes a breadth of traditional transportation data such as existing infrastructure, available routes, traffic counts and forecasts and crashes, as well as, information about land use and socio-economic characteristics pertinent to travel by alternative modes. For simple overviews, detailed data has been amalgamated into a Composite Bike/Ped Suitability index that shows the spectrum of opportunity for active transportation and a Bike/Ped Quality of Service grade.
TransPed marks a new paradigm for integrated multimodal transportation planning putting the resources essential to perform simple to complex analyses at everyone’s fingertips. Enjoy!
