A multi-tenant GIS recording and reconciliation system to collect, process, and distribute pedestrian pathway data.
- For more information check out our website.
- If you have questions you can reach us on our slack or by email.
CommonPaths was developed via a partnership between King County Metro and MVtransportation. The system can collect and serve high-fidelity pedestrian pathway information in a standardized and computable format. It can accurately describe, translate and serve the data in a usable and actionable format for consumption by various applications and users with mobility impairments.
Built with the convergence of credible data in mind, CommonPaths enriches pathway data by integrating data from the crowdsourced and community data-governed OpenStreetMap, calculating the slope gradient from USGS Digital Elevation Model, and reviewing it using a field assessment mobile app. Data collected and distributed via the CommonPaths application can serve as the basis for automated accessibility condition analysis across an entire region, pedestrian network connectivity analysis for a variety of user mobility conditions, and provide granular and automated pedestrian pathway navigation instructions similar to what vehicle experience today through in-vehicle GPS units.
A simplified overview of the CommonPaths features:
- Automated Itinerary and Transit Instructions for Individuals
- Customized Desktop & Field Review Applications
- Robust Data Control Pipeline with Data Conflict and Privacy / Proprietary Data Controls
- Automated Data Export
- Reports / Analytics
- Built-in Multitenancy for Multi-Agency Collaboration
- Cloud Native
