The following video and Product How-To guide describes how to create a 2017 AADT Project. This Project Type delivers Average Annual Daily Traffic (AADT) counts for road segments in the U.S. It uses a blend of navigation-GPS and Location-Based services data. To learn more about the methodology behind these Metrics, click here to download our 2017 AADT white paper.
For a brief overview of the process, please watch the short video below.
Step 1: Create Your Zones
1a. Create Pass-through Zones in the locations you would like to analyze. This can be done by uploading a shapefile or drawing Zones directly in StreetLight InSight. To learn how to draw or upload Zones please read our article [LINK ARTICLE HERE]. Zones can either be polygon Zones (like the one shown below) or line segments.
Note: All Zones used in a 2017 AADT project are required to have the “Bi-directional” setting. This means even Zones drawn over one-way streets will need to be Bi-directional.
Step 2: Set Up Your Project
2a. Select the “Estimated 2017 AADT Values” Metric from the list of Project Types. Once selected, both the Type of Travel and Data Source Type fields will automatically populate.
2b.Select the Zones created in Step 1 from the list of available Zone Sets. Click confirm to run the Project.
Note: that if any of the Zones in the chosen Zone sets are not marked as Bi-Directional, an error message will be displayed and the Project will not be created.
Step 3: Visualize and Download Your Results
3a. Once your Project has finished running, navigate to the “Interactive Visualizations” tool and select your AADT project. Visualizations will allow you to sort and filter your Zones based on their Estimated AADT values.
3b. To download results, navigate to the “All Projects” tab and click the download button. A CSV file titled “projectname_estimated_aadt.csv” will provide results for each Zone at the Average Day and All Day time periods.
