Application in planning practice

GOAT is a versatile planning instrument that can be used for various formal and informal planning processes. Among other things, GOAT can be used for local transport planning, local mobility concepts, cycling concepts, urban development plans, provision of public services and many other subjects.

Transport plans

The local transport plan provides a basis for the planning of public transport within the next few years. With the help of GOAT, gaps in the spatial distribution can be identified and the accessibility of central locations assessed. The scenario function can then be used to find suitable locations for the development of new stops.
Transport plans

Mobility concepts

Local mobility concepts as part of the ''15-minute city'' should make cities more liveable by improving accessibility and small-scale networking of everyday destinations. GOAT can identify gaps, barriers and risk points in the route network in order to make pedestrian traffic and connections more attractive and safer, as well as identifying potential for improvement.
Mobility concepts

Cycling concepts

Cycling concepts can contribute to relieving motorised individual traffic by optimising the cycle path network. With the help of GOAT, accident sites and dangerous intersections can be visualised, gaps in the cycling network can be identified using the scenario function, new route connections can be created and the effects on connectivity and accessibility can be evaluated.
Cycling concepts

Urban development plans

The ''city of short distances'' as well as an expansion of local mobility and a strengthening of city and local supply centres are important points of an urban development concept. In GOAT, locations of alternative mobility, gaps in the route network, accident locations and the accessibility of local centres and various points of interest can be visualised and, with the help of scenario building, redensification and improvement options for these can be shown.
Urban development plans

Provision of public services

GOAT makes it possible to analyze the accessibility to facilities of general interest (e.g. education, health or culture) in planning and decision-making processes. This makes it possible to develop scenarios on the effects of new or omitted facilities on supply. In turn, the location qualities of residential developments can be determined with regard to accessibility and thus planning decisions can be prepared with regard to their further development.
