Traffic Counts

LandVision™ Help > Documentation > Traffic Counts

Landvision™ provides Department of Transportation traffic data as a nationwide data set.

Whether you are looking for properties with high traffic around them to increase visibility, or are looking for low traffic counts for ease of access to a property, LandVision™ Traffic Counts will cover your needs.

Look for the "DoT Traffic" layer in your layers panel to get an idea of the traffic volume nearby the properties that you are looking at.

Traffic Count Layers

The Traffic Count layers behave similarly to the dataset layers you are already familiar with in LandVision.

They can be moved in the Layers Panel to place them in the order that makes them easiest for you to find based on your needs.

Traffic Count Layer

LandVision Traffic Count layers also come pre-styled for ease of use right from the start.

By default, the AADT (Annual Average Daily Traffic) counts are represented by different colors on the map.

Traffic Count Style

However you can customize their look and feel by simply using the Edit Style option for both the Traffic Counts data layer as well as the Traffic Counts Label layer.

The Traffic Counts data layer also has the familiar Tooltip popup that by default will show the "Annual Average Daily Traffic" for that roadway.

As with any Tooltip, this can be customized to show other or more detail that is available on that layer.

Traffic Count Tooltips

The Traffic Counts layer can also be searched to look for target properties with two built-in filters.

  • The AADT or Annual Average Daily Traffic filter can be used to find roadways with a specified traffic count.

    For Example: AADT = 10000

  • The No. of Lanes filter will let you search for roadways with a specified amount of lanes.

    For Example: No. of Lanes = 4

  • The Road Type filter will let you search for roadways based on how they are classified

    For Example: Road Type = Interstate

Traffic Count Filters

Identify the roadways you want to search by either:

  1. Clicking directly on the roadways you want to use individually, and clicking the Search Area command link on the information panel and setting the buffer distance (see steps below).

  1. Fill in the fields needed for the buffer settings based on the type of search you used.

    • Select to Buffer around the roadway to expand your search beyond the immediate roadway.

    • Then set the buffer distance and units of measurement.

  1. The new Search Area(s) can be used with another search.

    For example, once the Search Areas have been created, you can use it as a filter in a Property Search, along with any other property filters, to find key properties near that roadway.
