Complete Streets Assessment Tool (CSAT) 1.1

Description:

 

The Complete Streets Assessment Tool (CSAT) uses mobile GIS mapping technology to evaluate streets and intersections from the perspective of pedestrians, cyclists, and transit users. 

 

CSAT is intended for use by non-technical community groups, with a dual emphasis on data collection and community coalition building, but public agencies will find the tool to be useful as well. CSAT includes a graphical user interface (GUI), custom data entry forms, and desktop GIS map templates along with tool documentation, a technician’s manual and digital and printed promotional media. 

 

The tool is designed for use in a facilitated workshop setting with GIS technicians on site to train users in operating it, synthesizing and displaying data.

 

CSAT was developed by Prof. Marc Schlossberg, Associate Professor for UO's Department of Planning, Public Policy and Management (PPPM) and Associate Director of Oregon Transportation Research and Education Consortium (OTREC).
