Public Transportation Workshop a Success!

Here is an example of a bus route developed by a workshop participant.

20 folks attended to hear Dr. Anjomani discuss student endeavors to plan transportation routes and to then plan their own during this hands-on GIS workshop. For more information about this workshop, see this previous post.

Everyone had a lot of fun, bunch of folks stayed afterwards with questions, and I am already booked to repeat the workshop next week specifically for the City & Regional Planning GIS folks. Everyone generated their cost matrices, used some on-the-fly weighted mean techniques to position the stops, and then created the bus route. Then, of course, the script called ArcMap2GMap to overlay the stops and route via Google Maps.

As an added bonus, the event was covered in The Shorthorn, our student-run newspaper (see image). Click here (pdf) to view the entire issue from Friday, March 2.

As I promised earlier in the week, the workshop materials, including the Python scripts, can be downloaded here. This is actually the zipped contents of the CDs that each participant received. Unzip the contents and launch the Public_Transportation_in_Arlington_Plan_the_Route.exe file (which would have auto-run if you had the CD). ArcGIS 9.1 is required. It might work with 9.2, but I have not tested it.
