Focus On -  Interactive Mapping Tools

  Focus On Interactive Mapping Tools

H-GAC's interactive mapping tools shed some light on commuting patterns and activity density to help take the guesswork out of planning transportation improvements in the region.


Commuting Patterns in the H-GAC Region
 

Commute Patterns Screen Shto Ever wonder where people in the H-GAC region are commuting to and from for work? The Commuting Patterns in the Region tool helps users visualize workers' commuting patterns. Click on a geographic area of the "workplace" map to see how many people are commuting there from areas across the region. Or, click on a location on the "home" map to see a list of where people living in that area commute. You can select more than one area of the map at a time for a broader look at commuting patterns.


The results are displayed as a list for regional sectors, counties, zip codes, and Census tracts. Maps are also available as 3-mile hexagonal grids, displaying results as a chart illustrating commuting distances. Results are available for download as a PDF or an Excel spreadsheet.

 

Density/Connectivity Index
Blue Map Screen Shot The Density/Connectivity Index Map (also known as the Blue Map) allows users to identify employment, household, intersection, and activity density in the 8-county H-GAC region. The Index is available as a summary viewer and an advanced viewer, showing users areas where people live and work, where streets are well-connected, and where walking or transit choices already exist or could be added or improved.

 

Both versions of the Index are mobile-friendly and available free online. A user manual is available for the advanced viewer, and data is available for download as a PDF or an Excel spreadsheet. No GIS experience is necessary to use these tools. H-GAC and U.S. Census data used for the Index is updated annually. 

 

Both the Commuting Patterns Map and Density Connectivity Index are ideal for local governments, policy research organizations, employers, and transit providers interested in getting a feel for where improved or additional transit investments (including streets, sidewalks, bicycle facilities, and other transportation amenities) can be considered.

 

More information about these tools, including a video presentation, is available online.

RESTORE Funding Applications Workshops Offered at H-GAC

Restore Texas Coast Grant applications under the Direct Component (Bucket 1) federal RESTORE Act are now being accepted for coastal restoration projects for Texas.


Two application workshops are being offered on Thursday, March 3, at H-GAC, Conference Room B, Second  Floor. The workshops will be from 2:30 to 4 p.m. and from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.


The total of approximately $56 million is available for funding. Applications must be submitted by Friday, April 15. 

 

For more information, visit the Restore the Texas Coast website.

Storm Debris Workshop Series Begins March 8

Tornado and Lightning H-GAC's series of debris management workshops kicks off Tuesday, March 8, with No-Notice Events. The workshop will be from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at H-GAC Conference Room B, Second Floor. 

 

In the past 10 years, most of the disasters the Houston-Galveston area has dealt with have been hurricanes. However, 2015 was a year that reminded us all disasters have a 5-day time frame to prepare and get resources in place. The challenges of dealing with debris from events such as tornadoes, flooding, and ice storms can be vastly different than the historical hurricane-centric debris damage.

 

This workshop will include case studies from events that have impacted Texas in the past year and a discussion of the challenges inherent in responding to a no-notice event. This discussion will include the following:

  • Operating without a declaration
  • Search and rescue operations
  • Challenges of estimating debris

DRC Logo Refreshments for this workshop are sponsored by DRC Emergency Services

 

There is no cost for this event, but space is limited and registration is required. Register to attend this event in person by contacting Erin Livingston at 832-681-2525. To attend via webinar, register online

 

Mark your calendars for the additional workshops in the series:

  • Mitigating Your Hazards
    Thursday, April 18
  • Big Changes at FEMA
    Tuesday, May 10

Pedestrian-Bicyclist Counters Available

Walking in a cross walk H-GAC has temporary pedestrian-bicyclist counters available for use by local governments to count the number of people using sidewalks and/or trails, giving implementing entities and H-GAC a better understanding of the demand and use of these facilities.

 

For information about borrowing the counters, contact Andrew Pompei at 832-681-2598.

Camera-Sharing Program Helps to Combat Illegal Dumping

Camera To help track and reduce illegal dumping, H-GAC  offers surveillance cameras and accompanying accessories through a sharing program. The cameras can capture clear videos day or night, including license plates of cars traveling up to 50 mph.

 

Participation in the program is for local governments within the 13-county H-GAC region and involves specific agreements, including a commitment to only use the cameras for solid waste purpose, and report results to H-GAC.

 

To allow easier access to local governments, ownership of the cameras has been transferred to Fort Bend, Galveston, and Walker counties. To access the cameras, borrow them from one of those three counties. 

 

For more information, contact Erin Livingston at 832-681-2525.
