Final Thoughts

EMME is a tool to measure the impacts of future transportation improvements

ARCGIS is a tool to visualize the impacts of future transportation improvements

ARCGIS helps communicate the value of transportation improvements (for transportation decision-makers, the public, politicians and senior funding agencies)
