Nonmotorized Database System


MS2 Nonmotorized Database System (NMDS) is a web-based mapping and analysis software module that allows traffic engineers and transportation planners to map, manage, analyze, and visualize nonmotorized data collection points within their jurisdictions. Agencies can easily analyze daily and weekly volumes of pedestrians, bicycles, wheelchairs, horseback riders, skateboarders, motorized scooters, and e-bikes, as well as other modes of nonmotorized travel as defined in the FHWA Traffic Monitoring Guide. The interactive map allows easy selection of distinct trails or pathways for analysis.

NMDS supports data imports from a variety of count equipment that capture data from bike lanes, sidewalks, bike paths, trails, and crosswalks. It allows agencies to import data from various counter manufactures like Miovision, Eco-Counter, Q-Free CMU, and Trafx. Manual counts in Microsoft Excel format can also be directly imported to NMDS. The dashboard can be available to the public, allowing users to view system-wide data or navigate to a specific location using the map.

Many agencies are looking to Esri Roads and Highways (R & H) to manage their networks. R & H provides tools to track network changes over time and can provide an agency with a central place to store GIS data.
