Thought I would get the posting off to a start, I am Dan, I work for Basemap and look after the Accession product in the UK on behalf of Citilabs, this includes support and sales of the software. Many of you I am sure will have received an e-mail from me at some point. I also deal with data, I look after various data types that can be used in Accession and am always on the lookout for new data that can be used to enhance the software or new ideas of what data would be useful.

If you ever need to contact me for Accession then my e-mail is Accessionsupport@Citilabs.com

Hi,

My name is Rob, I work in the private sector, I am fairly new to Accession and Accessibility planning having just graduated from Southampton University. Is there a big community out there of Accession users? Also are there many private sector workers or is this software dominated by the public sector?

I look forward to hearing from you fellow users,

Rob

Hi,

My name is Rowley and I work for Staffordshire County Council, and have been using Accession for around a year and a half now (as I think Dan probably knows by now from my many e-mails in the past!), mostly for calculating national indicators such as access to certain hospitals in Staffs by bus, so I do a lot of exporting of contours to Shape File for analysis, as well as using it to assess options for new bus services. My work often includes creating new bus services within Accession, as well as modifying existing routes to test different scenarios. I use CIF files downloaded from Traveline when required as I have looked at the national download of CIF files for Staffordshire and it does contain a number of duplications and omissions so is not accurate enough for my needs.

I will be very interested to know of issues which other users have experienced with using Accession to see if they match the experiences I have had with it over the last 18 months.

Cheers,

Rowley

Hi

My name is Ian, I work for the private sector and have been using Accession for a couple of years. While we have found it to be useful in the private sector, there is some way to go to make it a 'very useful' development planning tool for specific sites. My work often relates to calculating walk and cycle isonchrones along with public transport accessibility maps. All the contours are then exported into MapInfo for background mapping and annotation purposes using national datasets of points of interest.

I look forward to hearing ideas from other consultants.

Ian

Hello all,

My name is Mikey and I work in the private sector. My main use of Accession is to generate isochrones, then export them into ArcGIS to create accessibility figures, sometimes having coded in a new bus route or re-coded bus routes. I have in the past also had to use repositories passed to me from borough councils to assess how they are performing against targets, carrying out geodemographic analysis and producing figures within Accession itself which I try to avoid!

I agree it is a very useful tool, but could definitely be improved.

Mikey

Hi - my name's Ian. I work in the public sector and have used Accession to do mainly basic threshold contour work along with a little bit of continuous measures. I am currently trying to get my head around what has been done to calculate the national core accessibility indicators and would be interested to hear from anyone else who is involved in this area of work at the moment.

Hi, my name is Andrew and I work in the public sector. I use Accession mostly for accessibility tests and to inform local and national indicators. I also use it to produce contour maps for export into GIS. I have used the software on and off for the past 3 years. I hope to use this forum to find answers to questions that can crop up, mostly of a "how to" nature.

Hi,

I'm Sara and I work for MVA consultancy, I have been using Accession for a few years now and am keen to learn of new developments in the software. I am also interested in viewing the help guides and trying to utilise the trafficmaster speed application to generate more accurate road speed calculations.

Hi,



I'm Carl, I work in the public sector. Have been using Accession for a couple of years but still consider myself to be a noob. Just interested to see what other users are doing with Accession and hopefully get some new ideas how to use the software for other projects away from the LTP.

Hi All,
My name is Mike, I work for a private consultancy. I have just recevied the e-mail regarding the latest Tracc software, I am interested in the discounted £1850 price, we had stopped using Accession due to it's high licence cost. Going to download the beta and feedback information to this forum.

Cheers all,

Mike
