Features currently available as an open beta:

Stop Analytics with Clusters Beta on the Altitude Platform

The Stop Analytics with Clusters feature aggregates movement and stopping data to group similar patterns, enhancing data visualization and analysis. This innovative functionality clusters activities based on activity volume rather than shapes, streamlining user interaction and interpretation. Explore and analyze where stopping occurs on road networks, areas needing efficiency improvements at intersections, or locations where stop occurrences on arterial roads, highways, and interstates should be minimized. Test Stop Analytics Clusters and share your thoughts with our Product Team to help us tailor this feature to your needs.

 

Final Thoughts

At Altitude, we’re committed to providing as much value as possible to our clients and partners. By participating in our Beta Program, you’re not just testing new features—you’re helping us build a brighter future for transportation together.

A Note on Beta Testing: Beta testing is a phase where we test, validate, and solve problems. It serves to preview features, retain customers, engage with users, and add value. Beta testers play a crucial role in refining our offerings and ensuring stability before full release. Your feedback ensures the software performs well in diverse conditions and meets your high standards.
