Multidimensional Assessment of transport-related policies on municipality level

  • Project Duration: 03.2024 – 02.2025
  • Project Lead: Martin Loidl (Z_GIS)

  • Staff: Lea Effertz

Initial Situation

The climate and mobility change we are striving for is a matter of great urgency. In order to achieve these goals, measures must be optimized in terms of their impact and be implemented swiftly. Tools for evidence-based decision-making and planning must take into account the high complexity of multidimensional causal relationships on the one hand and ensure transparency, comprehensibility and user-friendliness on the other. Such tools are still lacking, particularly for use at a municipal level. Open data paired with expert and user knowledge form the basis for the efforts in LMI-S to design such a tool.

Project Goals

  • Design of a data-based sustainability index at municipal level.


  •  Requirements analysis with relevant stakeholders.


  •  Impact modeling of measures to promote sustainable mobility.


  • Design of a digital evaluation tool.

Expected Results

  •  Digital assessment tool for calculating the sustainability indicator at municipal level.

Contribution Z_GIS

  •  Definition of sustainability indicators, including ontologies and an assessment of data availability.


  • Conceptual design of the sustainability index.
