Developing Advanced Spatial Analysis Tools in Transportation Safety Planning: Examining Planning Zones and Trip Data

The objectives of this project are: (1) To establish the suitability of a current traffic-related zoning approach in the new generation planning method: Transportation Safety Planning (TSP). (2) To explore the effective and efficient use in TSP of existing key determinants in Traditional Transportation as trip generation/distribution data. (3) Based on the accomplishment of objectives 1 and 2, to develop a prototype of a scientific, while practical, spatial analysis toolbox to advance TSP practice at various levels.
