Traffic Volume Index – INRIX
About INRIX Traffic Volume Index
Whether you are researching locations for new outlets, looking for the best sites for your product distribution and promotion or assessing road conditions, you need to know how much passing traffic to expect.
Choose this dataset to enhance your chosen street mapping data. Derived from billions of GPS sampled points from vehicles on the move, this dataset indicates the relative volume of moving vehicles on each street and minor roads in the UK. CACI's established spatial aggregation techniques have been used to assign each of the billions of GPS records to appropriate street links and calculate which of the 16 different traffic volume categories they should be assigned to.
- Build on the well known INRIX Road Speeds data
- Use of the most current traffic readings (from the last two years) to enhance the reliability of the data
- Traffic readings included for HGVs (heavy goods vehicles), vans and cars
How is it used?
- Analysing traffic volume in conjunction with other data in order to identify optimal sites for retail locations e.g. for fast-food Drive-Thru restaurants
- Identifying likely high-traffic stretches of road, in order to identify alternative routes e.g. for emergency vehicle routing.
- Understanding likely flow and volumes of traffic to assist in urban planning e.g. the consequent impact of road diversions during necessary roadworks
- Assessing traffic footfall e.g. to understand suitable outdoor advertising opportunities
- Street/road name on which the link falls
- SIF+ ID; the unique identifier of each road link
- Road type (Subclass) e.g. Motorway, A-road, etc
- Index value of traffic volume i.e. 1-16
- Per-metre index value of traffic volume i.e. 1-16
- Link length (in metres) for which the index value applies
