TRB Annual Meeting 2016

Here are my presentations and papers at the TRB Annual Meeting – Sunday 10 January -to- Thursday 14 January 2016:

  • Repurposing Travel Lanes for Multimodal Projects – Workshop 114 – Analyze This! What Planners Want to Know; Andy Nash, Green City Streets with Natalie Stiffler, City of Boulder. The workshop considers three problems, our problem considers the evaluation of and communications about the potential congestion impacts of sidewalk widening, bike lane, and transit lane projects. We’ll use Boulder’s Folsom Street project as a case study and try to develop strategies for improve the evaluation of these projects and communications about congestion.

GreenCityStreets.com now online!

GreenCityStreets.com now online!

(2019 Update) … Information from the GreenCityStreets.com website is now available on https://crowdsourced-transport.com

(Original from 2014) … The new GreenCityStreets.com website is now online and it’s much improved. I’ve made “GreenCityStreets.com” the umbrella name for all my work in the field of using information technology applications to improve public participation. Consequently I’ve described the work that was done as part of the BusMeister project in 2011 and 2012 as the BusMeister project.

The new website will present an analysis of the latest ideas in using information technology applications to improve public participation. It describes the following activities:

The website includes pages on each of these subjects (click the link) as well as blog postings with new ideas.

The website also includes links to our games (BusMeister, Grr-Grr-Bike, Working on the Railroad) and projects.

The website is still a work in progress so check back again in the future and let me know if you have suggestions or ideas. In the meantime, we hope you like the new site!

LSECities – Urban data conference – March 2014

LSECities – Urban data conference – March 2014

I’ll be participating as a discussant at a conference organised by Adam Greenfield at the London School of Economics on Friday March 14. Read more about the speakers and programs on the LSECities announcement or on Adam Greenfield’s blog post. It should be a provocative day!

UPDATE

The Urban Data from Fetish Object to Social Object conference in London was fantastic, lots of great ideas discussed by people doing really neat things with social data. Sjors Timmer did a nice post about the conference.

Vienna public involvement in transport app development

Meine Radspur Application Vienna Austria

meine-radspur is a GIS app developed in Vienna that tracks the routes used by bicyclists. Riders can indicate hazards and places that need improvements later.

I’m organising a roundtable discussion on using social applications (social networks, crowd sourced reporting, online games, wikis, and other tools) for helping improve sustainable transport.

We’ll start by identifying existing applications and then brainstorm ideas for Vienna (and beyond). If there’s interest we’ll organise a group to develop a real application or two. If you have questions or good examples to include in the presentation please contact me (andy@andynash.com).

When: Wednesday, October 9, 2013 … 18:30 – 20:30
Where: The Impact HUB Vienna, Lindengasse 56, 1070 Vienna
