This webinar was developed by the ITE Smart Communities Standing Committee.
This webinar was developed by the ITE Smart Communities Standing Committee. It features the use of data in smart communities in COVID-19 response and recovery. The webinar is one hour in length and featuring two presentations.
The first presentation is on Madison’s COVID-19 recovery data dashboard. This dashboard tracks Madison’s long-term community and economic recovery from COVID-19, and contains almost 50 metrics that give holistic insights into many aspects of the city’s recovery. The dashboard has played an important role in guiding the city’s COVID-19 response and recovery efforts, such as in determining the city’s peak hour traffic lane and parking restrictions, Streatery programs and VMT based mobility initiatives. Data for all metrics is updated at least quarterly.
The second presentation is on a recent study on utilization of COVID-19 street programs in 5 US communities using big data. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many communities launched “Slow streets”, “open streets” and “shared streets” programs to give non-driver users more space to socially distance by restricting motor vehicle traffic on selected streets. Traffic analytics firm INRIX analyzed trillions of anonymized location based data points in Minneapolis, New York, Oakland, Seattle and Washington DC to understand what impact these efforts had on mobility trends. While it is impossible to measure how many people were saved from COVID-19 specifically because of these efforts in each city, it is possible to evaluate the real-world impact of these programs on mobility trends, such as who made use of these programs most and who wasn’t well-served by these various programs, by using big data analytics.
The presentations will be followed by a question-and-answer session.
