Traffic jams cost the US a staggering $87 billion in lost productivity per year. Citizens in every city now use data from smartphones & embedded satellite navigation to work around traffic. Yet only a handful of local governments are fully capturing the value of new location data streams & spatial analysis to optimize their city traffic management operations & reduce CO2 emissions.Hear from San Diego's CDO
more city stakeholders using dashboards
more new data sets used in models
With a wide range of data streams now available from a rapidly growing number of sensors & GPS devices, we can now understand the health of our road networks at a deeper granularity than ever before. To make our cities safer & more efficient, local governments need to apply Spatial Data Science methodologies, going beyond the analysis of historical data, to predicting the probability of incidents by location.Read NYC Collision Prediction
Optimizing public transport infrastructure, such as bikes, buses, trains, & metro services, is paramount in order to reduce traffic & improve road safety. Analyzing commuter patterns through origin-destination matrices & spatial models allows cities to provide the right services to the people who need it most.See webinar
more staff using real-time data to drive decisions
increase of open data consumption
Providing real-time & crowdsourced insights on transport networks to citizens via intuitive solutions has become a key pillar of urban mobility strategies. Gathering & visualizing spatial data through simple Open Data web applications enables citizens to share information on road safety, congestion, & much more - allowing them to make more informed mobility decisions.Download WeCity Case Study
Some of our biggest location data challenges are centered around mobility, transit, and transportation. Thanks to CARTO's traffic management solution, our transportation engineers make real-time decisions based on the current traffic conditions in the city, enriched with new data from players like Waze.
