Percentile

Tools for transport planning with an emphasis on spatial transport data and non-motorized modes. Enables common transport planning tasks including: downloading and cleaning transport datasets; creating geographic "desire lines" from origin-destination (OD) data; route assignment, locally and via interfaces to routing services such as <https://cyclestreets.net/> and calculation of route segment attributes such as bearing. The package implements the 'travel flow aggregration' method described in Morgan and Lovelace (2020) <doi:10.1177/2399808320942779>. Further information on the package's aim and scope can be found in the vignettes and in a paper in the R Journal (Lovelace and Ellison 2018) <doi:10.32614/RJ-2018-053>.
