ICAT: Integrated Corridor Analysis Tool

The Integrated Corridor Analysis Tool (ICAT) is an analysis and planning tool being developed under the sponsorship of the I-95 Corridor Coalition.The Coalition's 16-State region, stretching from Maine to Florida, is a patchwork of information islands -- unconnected transportation planning networks, roadway and rail line data, and trip information. Coalition member agencies cannot easily relate these information islands to each other to inform and coordinate multi-state transportation planning, investment, and operations planning.The Coalition is developing ICAT to ensure that its members can effectively analyze and provide for coordinated transportation services across the Coalition region. ICAT will be a geographic information system (GIS) based, multi-state transportation network that will cover the full 16-State Coalition region. Roadway and traffic data will be linked to the network. The ICAT network and data will be accessible to all Coalition member agencies. They will be able to use the tool to paint a picture of transportation patterns across several states or the whole Coalition region, or to analyze trends and forecast future travel volumes. The project expects that ICAT will help our member agencies consider a broader analysis perspective and get the best value for their customers from the tax dollars that will be invested in the region's transportation systems. The initial applications for ICAT will focus on: bottleneck analysis, highway investment planning, and emergency/ evacuation planning.
