Improving Transportation Models for Non-Motorized Trips Scope of Work

The objective of this project is to develop a prototype of a Geographic Information System (GIS) -enabled and visualization-based sketch planning tool that will inform a community's decision on the development and/or non-motorized facilities. This tool will enable the decision makers to "mark" the potential non-motorized corridors on the digitized map, and to generate and compare estimates of pedestrian and/or bicycling volumes under different development/improvement scenarios. This project will be carried out in two phases. Phase 1 will characterize the "market" potential for non-motorized travel. Based on results from Phase 1, Phase 2 will develop a prototype of the visualization-based sketch planning tool using a neighborhood in the Washington DC region as the case study.
