What does the carbon footprint from transportation look like? In particular, how could you map it?

Typically, carbon footprinting exercises for local and regional jurisdictions deliver highly aggregated results. Even when the unit of analysis is geographic, the data is all about pie charts and tables. The results for New York City are…for all of New York City. Meaningful and important, but it leaves us missing something truly geographic in nature. Moonshadow Mobile recently completed a proof of concept (PoC) to derive greenhouse gas emissions estimates using measured vehicle movement data for Copenhagen, Denmark. This shows the spatial presentation of greenhouse gas emissions from […]

DB4IoT with INRIX Trips: Generate Origin-Destination Matrices in Seconds

By |August 22nd, 2018|

DB4IoT with INRIX Trips delivers the capability to generate Origin-Destination matrices from databases with hundreds of millions of waypoint records within seconds. This makes generating O/D matrices an interactive process. Users can change the time periods, date range or vehicle types and DB4IoT generates the O/D matrix automatically. This video shows how quick and easy it is to generate an O/D matrix in DB4IoT with INRIX Trips.

  • Making Better Transit Planning Decisions by Identifying ITS Data Errors

Making Better Transit Planning Decisions by Identifying ITS Data Errors

By |April 13th, 2018|

Over the last few decades public transit agencies have installed CAD/AVL systems on their buses for Computer Aided Dispatch and Automatic Vehicle Location. CAD/AVL systems capture data measurements of the location of the bus, number of passengers, delay, speed and many other variables, often as frequently as every five seconds. The result is a huge trove of data that can provide a wealth of information and insights about the operation of a transit agency. Data in these large quantities, however, always contains a significant number of errors. If charts, graphs and even complete dashboard solutions are based on faulty data they can lead to erroneous conclusions about drive times, speeds, delays, headway and other aspects of transit operation.
