October 3, 2018  - By

Caliper has released a free average annual daily traffic (AADT) map layer for Maptitude 2018 users.

The latest version includes fields with total AADT traffic count, semi-trailer truck count, single-unit truck and bus count, number of through lanes and road classification.

AADT is the total volume of vehicle traffic on a highway or road for a year divided by 365 days. It is a useful and simple measurement of how busy a road is, and is useful for:

  • selecting a new site or facility location, evaluating a site, or designing a territory
  • determining funding for highway maintenance and improvement
  • forecasting road maintenance needs and expenditure
  • identifying the best location for your business based on traffic patterns
  • analyzing how traffic may impact store construction
  • analyzing the environmental hazards of sound and pollution related to road transport

The downloaded layer can be added to any Maptitude 2018 map.
