Local Area Transport Energy Evaluation (LATEE), New Zealand Warrant of Fitness Data and VKT Analysis Mapped to Census Unit AreasMethod Description and Validation
A method to evaluate the household energy use for personal transport and assign that information to geospatial locations has been developed by the Advanced Energy and Material Systems Lab research team at the University of Canterbury. The project was part of the Towards Sustainable Urban Forms (TOTUS) research programme that aims to provide quantitative geospatial information about transportation energy consumption for planning purposes. The Local Area Transportation Energy Evaluation (LATEE) methodology uses data from the Ministry of Transport and Statistics New Zealand to calculate annual vehicle kilometres travelled (VKT) and assign average values to local census area units.
