Local Authorities gain insights into traffic flows using new cloud based system Tuesday 3 November 2015 PDF Print we can quickly and easily dig into the evidence, looking back over years to understand where policies and schemes have worked” Highways Analyst is the new web application from Basemap, offering a quick, easy and cost effective solution for Traffic Calming Officers, Network Analysts and Transport Planners within Highways Departments to manage Trafficmaster data. Doncaster Local Authority recently reviewed the performance of public transport in their area and used Highways Analyst to help produce insights for the Bus Intelligence report. Highways Analyst with Trafficmaster data was used to deliver congestion monitoring and traffic flow information to track congestion levels and trends by road type and time of day, including school holidays. Using Highways Analyst, Martin Bowman, Business Intelligence Officer at South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive, was able to create maps of the core network over time, which helped to visualise the changes in Doncaster. Martin Bowman said, “Analysing Trafficmaster was beyond our in-house capacity, and because of that we were missing out on a wealth of intelligence that this free ‘big data’ source could provide. As a result of Highways Analyst “we can quickly and easily dig into the evidence, looking back over years to understand where policies and schemes have worked”, and ensure we target our finite resource effectively.” Steve Swindon, CEO at Basemap Limited said, “We were asked by several local authorities to build an intuitive tool to help them quickly analyse their Trafficmaster data. As a result we have launched Highways Analyst, which has already attracted wide interest from Central Government and Local Authorities across the UK.” More information: www.basemap.co.uk/highwaysanalyst Contact information: For further information please contact Nicola Macdonald on 07565 382803 firstname.lastname@example.org About Basemap Limited Basemap Ltd was set up in 2000, and has been successfully servicing the IT and GIS needs of both the private and public sectors since then.
