Linework, Models, Counters… OH MY: A Utah Story of Multi-Agency Collaboration to Develop Active Transportation Data and Tools
September 15 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm EDT
In the last two years Utah has made huge strides in active transportation (AT) data collection, curation, and distribution. The key to success continues to be a multi-agency partnership, and tackling the challenge through a logical order of projects. This session will highlight four Utah AT information resource initiatives: development and stewardship of a robust, integrated AT GIS database; the region’s first bicycle travel demand model that estimates trip distribution and bike volumes based on human and infrastructure characteristics; a statewide effort to develop expansion factors for the now freely available Strava Metro app-based data; and the creation of a statewide repository to house AT counter data. The success of these projects is rooted in developing and sustaining strong collaboration that has connected partner priorities, available resources, and technical expertise. More information.
