SUSTRANS Active Travel Data
THE OUTCOMEThe Project was completed on-schedule, with the agency’s requirements fully completed at Go-Live.
Drakewell implemented an Active Travel data management system, public interface, and auto-polling for Sustrans, incorporating existing assets, historical data, and plans for future data needs.
Drakewell implemented protocols for the Agency’s Bike/Ped counters, implemented auto-polling, and developed the required API tools for certain counter types. Additionally, Drakewell configured key reports and dashboards to display data in the desired class scheme and format.
The Public Interface is widely accessible, and it features National Cycle Network linework alongside bike/ped sites for a contextualised, geospatial display of data.
Over the course of the implementation, Drakewell expanded the range of counter protocols supported, adopted new data visualisation and processing methods to accommodate bicycle and pedestrian data, and developed numerous reports to support active travel data management.
Our team had the opportunity to discover alongside the customer what the trajectory of active travel data management was, use-cases for data, priorities for data consumers, and the key trends and patterns active travel data often follows.
This implementation also highlighted the growing importance of weather data, new counter technologies, and baseline reporting for local, regional, and national traffic agencies.
