2007 - NZ - ITS Environmental Monitoring and Forecasting: International Trends and Experiences


2007 - NZ - ITS Environmental Monitoring and Forecasting: International Trends and Experiences

The purpose of this project was to review the use overseas of environmental monitoring and forecasting systems as a component of wider-integrated ITS facilities, in particular those linked to transport and traffic management, and to consider their potential for New Zealand. It also aimed to provide direction from overseas best practice on the use of these systems to monitor, forecast and manage the adverse environmental effects of New
Zealand traffic.

Through evaluation of these systems this research intended to highlight the benefits that could be achieved through an improved ability to plan and manage traffic on the basis of accurate and reliable environmental data. It also planned to provide better information on the adverse effects of traffic on the environment, especially through air and noise pollution, leading to better targeted mitigation strategies (short and longer term).
