We work with outside tools and data that allow us to develop GIS, Excel, and Access-based tools for transit and active transportation applications. They rely on readily-available and client-provided data and incorporate, as needed, scheduling software (i.e., Hastus, Trapeze), on-board bus data systems and processing tools (i.e., Clever Devices, Xerox, UTA), performance reporting tools (e.g., Tableau), and transit planning tools (e.g., Open Trip Planner, Remix).
Some of the tools that we have developed include:
Foursquare ITP develops custom performance measurement tracking databases to organize data collection and automate performance measurement outputs such as tables, graphs, and charts to track progress towards an agency’s goals and objectives. In many cases, these performance measurement trackers can also be integrated into online dashboards.
Example Applications: The Arlington County Performance Measurement System for the Transportation Division tracks 40 measures for a unified and simplified repository of performance tracking, making ongoing performance tracking simple across four independent departments. The Arlington County Performance Measurement System database tool was then translated into a public-facing dashboard. The DC Circulator Performance Dashboard utilizes a script to automatically update performance data in the Tableau platform to instantly visualize monthly performance metrics.
