Xaqt has split up the CityIQ feeds into five pillars, Traffic, Parking, Bicycle, Environment and Pedestrian. If you are new and want to learn more about the data before proceeding further, feel free to read our Getting Started With CityIQ post which walks through the fundamentals of CityIQ data. This post serves to document and organize the analytics Xaqt has built on top of CityIQ.

Each section of this article contains a table outlining the insight name, the insight type, (i.e. Map, Time Series) a Description and the Data Sources required for full functionality.

Parking

The CityIQ Parking feed provides insights on measured parking zones and vehicles parked inside of those measured zones. The data collected reflects the counts of vehicles in each zone, the time the vehicle parked, the time the vehicle left and the approximate location of the vehicle within the zone analyzed. The following insights are the currently available insights within the Xaqt Engage platform.

Insight Insight Type Description Data Sources
Real-time Occupancy of CityIQ Zones and Length of Stay of Parked Vehicles Map View real-time parking occupancy and location of vehicles to understand the current state of parking CityIQ Parking
Average Count of Parking Events in One Day Map View popular parking destinations alongside Points of Interest CityIQ Parking, Xaqt POI Database
Parking Events per Day Time Series See anomalies and seasonal patterns in parking over time CityIQ Parking

Parking Events by Day of Week Bar Chart View seasonal patterns by day of week in parking CityIQ Parking
Parking Events by Hour of Day Bar Chart View parking events by hour of day to understand when people are parking their cars CityIQ Parking

Traffic

The CityIQ Traffic feed provides data captured from the CityIQ Traffic sensors which monitor a section of street. These sensors capture data on vehicle counts, vehicle types, speeds and direction. The following insights are currently available within the Xaqt Engage Platform.

Pedestrian

Pedestrian Sensors throughout San Diego

CityIQ Pedestrian feeds collect data on overall counts of pedestrians, their speed, and their direction. CityIQ does not collect any data on any individual people, rather overall counts and speeds. The insights that are currently available to Xaqt Engage Users are below.

Insight Insight Type Description Data Source

Pedestrian Counts by Hour of Day Bar Chart Understand when most pedestrians are out and about CityIQ Pedestrian
Pedestrians Over Time Line Chart Understand and monitor when there are high and low counts of pedestrians over time CityIQ Pedestrian

Environmental

CityIQ Environmental insights collect data on Temperature, Pressure, and Humidity. We have the location of the sensor and the time of the events. The following are insights we have created to-date to measure and create meaningful analytics on this type of data. Below are the insights currently built in our platform that are available to users.
