Gaist launch Roadscape white paper

Roadscape city

The roadscape, taken literally, forms ‘the area around the road in the public domain, or between the fences’- a key point of connectedness for society and an ever changing landscape for road usage.

Roads are at once practical, key economic arteries weaving together financial centres and enabling

people to earn and spend money. On the other hand, roads tell stories of geography and history and

provide access to space and social infrastructure- at once an entirely practical solution to the

challenge of movement of goods and people and provider of less immediately apparent societal


But what are the strategic implications of decisions made on our roads today, and what is needed to

take a longer-term view on how and who uses our roads and the spaces around it?

Last week Gaist launched a white paper called, 'understanding the roadscape, the answer to life, the

universe and everything?', exploring these very questions.

This comes in a busy month for Gaist, exhibiting at LCRIG Strictly Highways, RSTA Fact or Friction and

the ITS World Congress alongside upcoming events such as the 20’s Plenty conference and

Connected Britain events. Though showcasing the wide range of applications Gaist’s unique data

provision lends itself to, the common thread is the roadscape intelligence that underpins their offer.

That’s why they wanted to explore in more detail the wider strategic implications of the data we

provide, analyse and interpret.
