I attended a session where Oxford County Council reflected on their change in approach to modelling future infrastructure and the increasing need for it to be research based, using analytical data to inform key planning decisions. Oxford were certain future journey analysis needed to be dictated by the best multi-modal option rather than looking at each mode in isolation.
We had some fantastic conversations including with an Australian CEO who is in the UK seeing how we approach modelling and spoke about the need to ensure data is accurate and reliable. The DfT presented and made specific mention of Basemap’s TRACC software in helping them with journey time statistics and the invaluable detail it provided to them.
The day had a great buzz and we were busy introducing TRACC to new potential customers as well as seeing a few old faces and discussing how they are using TRACC currently. A good event for Basemap and we look forward to returning next year!
