The Visualizing Sustainable Transportation project will provide interactive visualizations using augmented reality displaying potential transportation options for Santa Cruz County. The goal of the project is to provide a fun and immersive community experience.
The visualizations use an OWLtm viewer to demonstrate transportation and land use options that address congestion, city and county plans/projects, the passage of Measure D, discussions about priorities with community leaders, and state mandates to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
- Optimize use of existing streets through enhanced bicycle, pedestrian and transit facilities
- Expanded safe mobility options for all members of the community
- Options that decrease greenhouse gas emissions from vehicle miles traveled
- Walk-friendly, compact, mixed-use neighborhoods
- Options that decrease personal transportation expenses thereby increasing the amount of money that can be reinvested in the local economy
Look to the future; travel through time right on the spot
- Now - November 15: Soquel Drive @ Chanticleer, near the Sutter Surgery Center
- October 21-November 29: Natural Bridges @ the railroad crossing near the Wrigley Building
- Spring 2018 Watsonville and Live Oak
Participants will be able to provide feedback about the short and long term visualizations via a short survey on the Owl viewer. Each visual will also be accessible through a “pocket owl” for smart phones, computers or other devices. The “pocket owl” will be available atwww.sccrtc.org/vis after the Owl viewers are up.
