Sugar

Investment Prioritization through the Measurement of Accessibility

Sugar is the perfect application to score and understand your community’s accessibility to employment opportunities, daily errands, and public services. Accessibility to valued destinations drives land values, spurs local businesses, and improves health. It is also the most important indicator of the value offered by proposed transportation investments and economic development plans to a community. Accessibility quantifies how well our transportation-land use system responds to the needs of our residents, businesses, and visitors.

Sugar is an extension to ESRI’s ArcGIS, commonly used by many urban and transportation planners throughout the world. It adds a multimodal transportation data model to ArcGIS and leverages Cube’s multimodal modeling capabilities to make the design and measurement of transportation and economic development plans simple and straightforward. Sugar calculates indices of accessibility through the multimodal transportation network, versus more simple calculations done by other software products, and produces high-quality maps to visualize the results. These functions provide an accurate and clear understanding of the real-world ability of projects and plans to improve resident’s ability to reach employment opportunities, conduct their daily activities, and access public services.
