Journey Wizard

JourneyWiz

 

The AUNT-SUE Journey Wizard was initially built on the assumption that there would be a parallel approach to accessibility policy & planning across different disciplines- distinguishing macro-meso-micro scales: from city-regions down to the micro-level of streets, vehicles and facilities such as bus stops, signage and ticket machines.

 

However, we soon realised that the boundaries as well as the integration points between those scales are interrelated. During the course of the project, our team has developed a conceptual framework that links seemingly isolated professional or departmental silos by means of a focus on the Whole Journey Environment.

 

The framework comprises for scenarious: 1) the Whole Area, 2) the Whole Journey, 3) the On Street Journey, and 4) the On Transport Journey.

 

The AUNT-SUE research covers the whole journey environment.

 


 

1. Pedestrian Environment (Neighbourhood Scale)

Neighbourhood Scale

If you wish to model or measure either accessibility or access to services and facilities throughout an urban area, you should read more about our work on GIS-based 2D modelling of physical and perceptual barriers.

 

See AMELIA, SDI, SEI and Prospect/Refuge for further details.

 

 


 

2. Whole Journey (Origin to Destination)

Whole Journey

If you wish to measure accessibility or access to specific journeys, you should read more about our SAMMIE/CAD-based 3D modelling and GIS-based 2D modelling research – considering the whole journey environment (door to door, from home to activity destination and back to home) that includes various stages and modes of transport.

 

See AMELIA, i-Journey, Stresstimator for further details.

 


 

3. On Street Journey

On Street Journey

 

If you wish to measure accessibility or access to a particular or whole stretch of street, such as high street or streets that lead to prime destinations and transport access points, you should read more about our SAMMIE/CAD-based 3D modelling and GIS-based 2D modelling research about barriers that are both physical and perceptual.

4. On Transport Journey

On Transport

 

If you wish to measure accessibility or access of public transport infrastructures, you should read more about our SAMMIE/CAD based 3D modelling research about physical and perceptual barriers.

 

See HADRIAN and Stresstimator for further details.

  


 

Overall evaluation

If you wish to evaluate previous policy or assess the need for action and proactive policy intervention such as in a Local Transport Plan, Sustainable Communities Strategy, Community Safety Strategy or Accessibility Plan, we recommend you read more about our work on Benchmarks and VISIT.
