LED Webinar
Combining Census Data with OpenStreetMap Data to Develop Highway Access Measures

1:30 pm EDT

The U.S. Census Bureau and the Local Employment Dynamics (LED) Partnership in collaboration with the Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER), welcomes Colby Brown as he presents, “Combining LODES, ACS, and Open Street Map Data to Develop Highway Access Measures.”

While it is now straightforward to develop accessibility measures for pedestrians, bicycles, and even public transit modes of travel using free data, highway modes remain expensive to analyze because of the need for high-resolution congested link speed data.

This presentation outlines a workflow for developing accessibility measures for auto modes such as, journey to work time and highway travel time, by combining Census data with OpenStreetMap, a free editable map.
