Steer Davies Gleave
Swindon Journey Planner
The custom-made journey planner and map for Swindon Borough Council was created as part Steer Davies Gleave’s support of ‘Swindon Travel Choices’, a new initiative to promote sustainable travel alternatives to employees working in Swindon town centre. Using OpenStreetMap (osm.org) data for routing as well as to create the stylised mapping consistent with all printed products, Steer Davies Gleave designed and developed an effective map base that was easy to understand in all the formats required.
The planner application is fully responsive to all devices, including smartphones and tablets, and provides multi-modal door-to-door travel options using ‘open source’ data. The cutting edge user-focused design , allows the Council team to highlight the health and cost benefits of alternative modes to employees when they interact with them through personal travel planning sessions. Steer Davies Gleave was commissioned by Swindon Borough Council to create the website, journey planner and cartographic outputs to support their LSTF project.
“The judges found the map to be clear and felt that it really works, a good piece of cartography.”
