1a. First go to the Manage Travel Projects Tab in StreetLight InSight and click “Add Zone Set.”
1b. Create a name for your Zone Set, then click “Draw New Zone.”
1c. Designate your Road Segment Zones. This works best if you draw gates across the road, but be careful not to catch any neighboring roads in your gate. You can zoom the map using an address or latitude/longitude coordinates. For this tutorial, you can use (38.2323381, -85.7091183) to zoom in an intersection in Louisville.
Keep in mind that for all Road Segment Zones, you are capturing information about trips passing through the Zone, not trips that are originating or ending in the Zone. Thus it’s important to check the “Pass Through Zone” box.
Pro Tip: For turning ratios, draw your Zone close to the intersection (but not in the intersection) so that the vehicles can’t slip past the gate and the intersection on some other road.
If you want to analyze traffic going west AND east through the gate, you’re done. Simply click “Save.”
