The Institute of Transportation Engineers, founded in 1930, remains the primary resource for reliable trip generation data. Reviewing agencies typically require ITE data for traffic analysis and studies. And now with the additional sorting features made possible through integration with OTISS, ITE data becomes even more valuable.
As a Software as a Service (SaaS) application, OTISS provides the flexibility to support access from virtually any computer or mobile device with an internet connection. Once you download the software, you'll have one account which anyone within the company can access, eliminating future upgrades and adding patches to the software. Contemporary software-as-a-service solutions like OTISS rely predominantly on the Web and only require an internet browser to use.
OTISS' intuitive user interface guides you every step of the way, reducing the learning curve and boosting productivity. Smart features like Copy Analysis and Copy Project significantly reduce the time spent preparing new projects or evaluating existing ones. OTISS helps you perform various 'what-if' scenarios in seconds based on a specific land use or for different land uses. Traffic engineers will recognize a familiar work flow and the features and benefits of OTISS will make their projects easier.
Trip generation data is commonly stored on a spreadsheet where multiple people have access. It's easy for multiple versions to exist as colleagues make changes without telling the other members of the team. Because of the cloud-based nature of OTISS, the latest version of the data is stored securely and everyone works on the latest version, minimizing human error.
Modes, mode share and occupancy vary region to region. This makes it impossible to use some standard trip generation data as the data may represent some standard type of modes. Using OTISS, users can perform analysis defining any study site modes and generating trips made by them. Besides, users can perform trip distribution, assignment accounting all modal trips generated by study site.
