During the planning process tools and skills are needed to achieve a successful outcome. Modelling and communication tools such as the MOVE Meter are necessary to validate the scenarios and different measures, and then come to possible solutions. This tool can be used to analyse socio-economical changes, infrastructure development, shift in modal split and their effects on accessibility, volume/capacity ratios and environment. These results can be shared in different workshops where all people involved can understand the possible outcomes of their actions.
The MOVE Meter is a user-friendly traffic and transportation analysis tool that supports informed decision-making in urban development. Due to its GIS and web-based nature this online tool improves the understanding of the linkage between traffic and transportation and spatial planning.
