Geographic Information Systems (GISs) provide a powerful framework for various tasks of transit management such as planning, performance evaluation, and marketing. GIS may be used to solve complex planning problems, assist in operations planning, and meet other management and operational needs. However, due to the changing nature of transit planning and operational data, transit planners and operators need to analyze the data over time, which requires a temporal GIS that is capable of storing, manipulating, and analyzing changes with respect to both time and space.
Temporal GIS will allow planners and transit operators to analyze data within a certain time frame defined by the user and compare it to those in another time frame or to the current available data. This ability will improve prediction of future transit demand, evaluation of past operations, and analysis of day-to-day operations and management.
This research entails the study of the applications of temporal GIS in transit planning and management. Transit management tasks are examined to identify those that may potentially benefit from temporal GIS. Their process, data needed, and possible applications are investigated. Examples of temporal GIS applications have been developed.
