Yes, agencies can work with their Customer Success Manager (CSM) to add custom data to the Remix platform. Remix has developed a process that enables users to visualize various formats of geospatial data within the platform. This process is constantly evolving and expanding in terms of capabilities, but Remix has been successful displaying the data formats below. Please note, not all datasets are created equal and the quality and “cleanliness” of the the data provided play a large role in the platform’s ability to successfully display such data. See our blog post, Planning with 5 types of Custom Visualizations, for some interesting examples.
Polygon and Line based data
- Shapefiles/KMLs can be imported to be used as a map layer (think municipal boundaries (shown below), council districts, or land use) or as a line calculation (think future population projections or transit trips by neighborhood).
Point based data
- Data from a spreadsheet that can be attributed to a point with latitude and longitude coordinates or point based shapefiles/KMLs can now be visualized in Remix. The most popular point based data we add is stop based data, such as boardings and alightings. Many customers also add points of interest data, such as the school locations layer showcased below.
If you have data you would like to visualize in Remix, please contact your Customer Success Manager and they will work with you to accurately display the data.
Additionally, if you have data that is not in one of the formats mentioned above, please feel free to reach out. There are no guarantees that Remix will be able to utilize the data, but in our efforts to continuously improve the platform, we would be interested to understand why the data would be useful.
