Reflection on data collection

The document summarizes the findings by comparing the resulting data requirements with available data in each partner city along with alternative data sources.

This output describes the outcomes and lessons learnt document of applying tools for local transport planning and gives an overview on the activities carried out in the partner municipalities. Participating municipalities/counties selected and implemented a transport model or used a planning tool for supporting the decision-making with options that help them meet their goals. This report offers practical implementation examples and is therefore also aimed at providing advices for other municipalities that are not part of the consortium.

One part of this activity was the collection of data needed for representing the situation within the municipality’s/county’s transport network. As well, the municipalities/counties needed to choose the planning or modelling tool, based on their modelling needs for concrete problems they would like to target as well as taking into account already available models. The chosen model and method had as well to be compatible with SWOT analysis.

The document is structured as follows. First, the development of the transport models is given, divided into collection of the needed data and the development of a representation of the transport network state, if applicable for a city. Then, an overview on the generated results is given. The following chapter 4 gives the recommendations for developing transport models. Finally, an overview of the preparation of the terms of reference is given.
