Heatmap Analysis in Traffic & Parking

One tool that can be used to support traffic and parking management decisions is heatmap analysis. You identify and analyze qualities like street segments where speeds are consistently high and dangerous. You could also find a lot of variation in speed from one block to the next. This would likely be due to traffic congestion.

How You Can Use Heatmap Analysis in Traffic & Parking

Understanding Customer Behavior

Heatmap data can reveal patterns in customer behavior, such as the times of day when your business is most popular. For example, if heatmaps are always hot during certain times of day or days of the week, that could be a clue as to when customers are most likely to visit your business.

Spotting Trends

By tracking heatmaps over time, businesses can start to spot trends. For example, if a new hotspot has formed, that could be a sign that some particular aspect of your business is increasing in appeal and you may need to make changes to your inventory or staffing to accommodate that increase.

Identifying Problem Areas

If heatmap analysis is reporting unexpected cold spots, it could be a sign that there is a problem with that area. Maybe you need to reorganize your layout, or add attractive signage to spur more attention to certain areas.

Capacity Planning

By understanding what your heatmaps are like, you can ensure that you have the resources in place to accommodate customers. If you see heatmap data that suggests some crowded hotspots, you can create a plan of action to intervene.

Advise Marketing Campaigns

If you know how much time certain parts of your business are appearing to have hotspots, you can better target your marketing campaigns. For example, if hotspots are lower in one part of the business than the other, that could be a good place to put an advertisement to visit the other part of the business.
