Introduction
Step 3 – Draw a Route/Area

Route

Route Analysis calculates statistics for a defined route between its start point and a destination, optionally with via points.

Click “Add new route” to start drawing or “Add from template” if you previously saved one:

· The maximum route length is 200 kilometers;

· The maximum number of routes is 20;

Follow these steps to add a route:

Adding a route in a few steps.

1. Provide a name.

2. Select the "start" and the "finish" points. Keep in mind, that it is also possible to select the points on the map. In case the route geometry is not what was expected, it is possible to adjust it by adding "via" points on the roads where the route should be located.

3. Select the vehicle type.

  • Passenger: GPS location data from non-professional regular drivers.
  • Fleet: GPS location data from professional fleet vehicles, including trucks of different sizes and weights, urban delivery vehicles, and leasing passenger cars. No vehicle type distinction is made within the “Fleet” data category.

4. Select the map version.

5. To finish adding a route to your analysis - click “Add to report”.

Area - Full

Click “Add new area” to start drawing a polygon or “Add from template” if you previously saved one:

Follow these steps to add an area:

1. Provide a name.

2. Click “Draw polygon” and define an area by placing dots on the map and right-clicking to complete the polygon, or upload a GeoJSON file from your device.

It is also possible to upload the GeoJSON file with multiple polygons (however, the polygons in a multipolygon may not overlap, and may only touch at single points).

The maximum area size is 20 000 km2.

3. Define which FRCs (Functional Road Classes) to include in the query.  FRC is a hierarchical designation of the entire road network, ranging from Highways (FRC 0) to local city roads (FRC 7). Please see the table below with the explanation of each FRC:

4. Select the vehicle type.

  • Passenger: GPS location data from non-professional regular drivers.
  • Fleet: GPS location data from professional fleet vehicles, including trucks of different sizes and weights, urban delivery vehicles, and leasing passenger cars. No vehicle type distinction is made within the “Fleet” data category.

5. Select the map version.

6. Click “Add to report”.

Area - Traffic Density

The main difference between the Full Area Analysis and Traffic Density Analysis is that instead of the full report information (speed, travel time, and other average values) you will receive only the vehicle number observed for every segment.
