Airport Leakage Tool

Description & Features

Leakage is a major problem for mid-size and small airports, which are situated within a driving distance of major hubs. Since travelers can feasibly choose alternative travel methods, significant revenue opportunities exist if new air routes and services are strategically added to capture this leakage. This tool puts insights on the potential leakage of air passengers at your fingertips so that you can evaluate the benefit of extended service.

Community Return on Investment

Depend on accurate forecasts of the number of air passengers arrriving and departing to budget and plan efficiently.

Optimize flight planning by identifying unmet demand for air routes based on expected growth that supports the addition of additional flights.

Increase revenue by capturing “leaking” passengers.

Take advantage of marketing and branding opportunities with valuable insights on visitor origin and travel patterns over time.

Why we are different

Our Airport Leakage Tool stands out because of the detailed traveler information, such as their origin, historical trend analysis, and predictive analytics it offers all in one package.

The Airport Leakage Tool provides key indicators, including:

Modes of Transportation Used
View a breakdown of travelers by mode of transportation. Useful to detect time-specific preferences and patterns.
Travel Patterns Over Time
View a breakdown of travelers by season, month, and weekday. Useful in detecting a shift in travel preference. Detect trends and seasonality.
Visitor Origin
View a breakdown of visitors by their origin at various time points (by season, monthly).
Forecast of Air Passengers
Forecast air passengers arriving and departing into the future at various time points (e.g., by season, month, and weekday).


Transportation Planning Tool

Description & Features

CDP’s Transportation Planning Tool combines hard data from counting stations with real-time mobility data to remove the guesswork of conventional planning tools. show more

Community Return on Investment

Meet the transportation needs of your community—before breaking ground on your next project—with strong data and confident modeling.

Minimize the cost of expensive studies by replacing counts with our estimates wherever possible.

Measure wear and tear on your roads via VMT (vehicle miles traveled), strategically planning repaving and other maintenance into the future.

Make better decisions related to the public works workforce as well as which materials to purchase.

Calculate the impacts of road closures by understanding how people are using any particular corridor throughout the year.

Facilitate infrastructure planning with accurate data exports that include every major intersection, peak time turn counts, and other relevant information.

Why we are different

Transportation planning is a mixture of hard data, modeling, and best estimates. Our Transportation Planning tools differ from various DOT websites because our machine-learning algorithms take the data from these select intersections and use a community-specific model to estimate turn counts at every major intersection, every month of the year

Unlike survey data, which is collected infrequently and is affected by resident memory and bias, CDP uses mobility data, which records the actual locations of billions of devices down to the millisecond, making it a far superior source of information. This high-quality input data allows a frequent recalculation of a community’s VMT, providing decision-makers the tools to quickly assess the impact of any major change, whether it be a community initiative or a major road closure.

Basic Transportation Planning Tool features include:

Turn Counts for all Major Intersections

Mobility data tracks mobile devices moving around the community and produces accurate peak time turn counts for each major intersection in your community.

Seasonal Correction Factors
Seasonal correction factors by community and intersection.
Volume Trends
Percent growth over time.
Origin and Destination Flows
Volume of vehicles traveling to and from TAZ or client’s customized zones (ex. neighborhoods, specific shopping district, major employer).
OD Flows by Intersection

Flow tracking of every major intersection, any time of day. Includes a heat map of OD zones.

Vehicle Miles Traveled

A key indicator that shows overall how many VMTs a community is experiencing overall. As well as how initiatives like single-occupancy vehicles, bike-to-work, and others are effectively reducing traffic on the roadways. It can also be used to plan for road maintenance based on changing trends.



Parking Tracker

Description & Features

Our Parking Tracker helps determine the true demand for parking spots and quantifies how many new spaces should be added to create sufficient availability and turnover. When at 100% occupancy, all that is known is that demand is exceeding the supply, show more

Community Return on Investment

Optimize Local Business foot traffic and revenue by maximizing the number of customers who are able to find a parking space with the lowest wait times.

Balance parking fees with the demand to maximize parking fee revenue.

Decrease resident frustration with active parking monitoring and statistics.

Why we are different

In addition to the standard ability to track parking capacity, our Parking Tracker stands out by showing the opposite side of the coin—the number of people actively searching for parking spots. This highlights the opportunity costs to the community by offering pricing/demand optimization levers to adjust parking derived revenue and parking occupancy. In addition, the forecasting and scenario planning tools allow planners to identify risks associated with seasonal cycles and ad hoc events.

Basic Parking Tracker features include:

Capacity Tracking
Percent capacity by month, day of week, time of day
Unmet Demand

The number of people circling the parking system by month, day of the week, time of day (unmet demand) while highlighting the business impact of problem areas.

Predicting Capacity Concerns

Future capacity issue predictions based on seasonal factors.

Special Event Decisions

Quantify and predict the extent to which special events will interfere with regular business. Quantifying how many spaces could be used by an event will help with decisions to reserve parking lots and decks for critical staff and services.

Pricing Impact on Demand

Pricing increases are likely to reduce demand—but are higher parking rates helping or hurting area businesses?



Traffic Congestion Toolset

Description & Features

This tool combines both a high-level look and detailed reporting of the impact of traffic congestion across local indicators, cost factors, and long-term planning efforts.

Community Return on Investment

Minimize the negative impacts of traffic by incentivizing behavioral changes like carpool lanes and work-from-home benefits.
Reduce or eliminate traffic management expenses for on-the-ground police and traffic wardens, cone and temporary barrier setup/teardown, and more.
Eliminate or postpone capital expenses with the economical behavioral traffic reduction initiatives, as played out in each Scenario Analysis

Why we are different

Our Traffic Congestion Dashboard stands out by offering the benefits of predictive analytics in addition to conveying the status of current and historical traffic trends at a glance.

Basic Traffic Congestion Tool features include:

Overall traffic indicator
View current traffic stats such as average slowdown time and number of accidents per day.
Localized indicators
View a breakdown of the roadways of interest, showing how the traffic volume changes on average from month to month or across various times of day. Useful in detecting the viability of commuter incentives.
Major employer comparison
Analyze the specific impact of the largest local employers on traffic due to day start and end times. Determine if work-from-home initiatives are effective by detecting if the number of people physically reporting for work is changing over time.
Scenario analysis
Gauge the impact on congestion for event and project planning and highlight risk areas. Using this information will allow you to apply contingency measures to reduce negative impacts.
Long-term planning
Forecast long-term traffic trends in your community.
