The Analyst Tool comprises a number of visualisation and analysis capabilities for exploring your networks.
The Analyst Tool allows you to generate outputs based on your networks, services and simulations and create at-a-glance visualisations based on a variety of analysis types.
Clicking the Analyst Tool button on the tool bar will bring up a variety of analysis options and buttons on the tool properties panel for running analyses, exporting analysis data and clearing the current analysis.
Once you have selected your analysis type and selected the appropriate settings, the Analyse button will begin analysis. The export button will export the outputs in a variety of formats, including GeoJSON, Shapefile and KML.
Corridor frequency analysis produces an at-a-glance overview of the number of vehicles per hour (VPH) on a segment-by-segment basis along your service routes. The legend displayed in the bottom-right corner of your map indicates the VPH value associated with each segment's colour.
The selected day is set according set in your project clock.
The colour-coding of your routes can be set to represent either the busiest direction or for combined directions.
Note that some roads may be analysed as a one-way road in each direction, whereas others will be analysed as two-way based on the street network used.
Segment Vehicle Per Hour
Clicking an individual segment will bring up the Segment Vehicle Per Hour graph, where you can view more detailed statistics for each segment. Hovering over a bar will produce exact values for the given hour on the day chosen in your preferences.
The download button allows you to export these hour-by-hour statistics as a .csv file.
Stop Frequency analysis will produce statistics for all stops (stations) within your project. These statistics take into account the day/date selections made in your project clock.
There are three types of display for this analysis:
- Total departures - the number of vehicles stopping at each station.
- Average VPH - the average number of vehicles stopping at the station per hour.
- Peak vehicles - the maximum number of vehicles stopping at the station.
Clicking a station while in this mode is an alternative way of bring up the Station Service Overview panel on which departures per hour can be viewed according to route or agency on a given day, and exported using the .csv button. Hovering over the bar for a given hour will produce more detailed statistics.
Clicking items from the legend above the chart will enable/disable them.
