A review - University Conference on Transport 2022
The organisational team around Prof. Dr.-Ing. Uwe Plank-Wiedenbeck (Chair of Transport System Planning) invited colleagues to a conference in Weimar from 25 to 27 September 2022.
There was a lot on offer in terms of content: The scientific discourse ranged from mobility behaviour to traffic planning, traffic engineering, electromobility, modelling and freight transport. The numerous abstracts submitted in advance resulted in an exciting programme with various expert lectures and workshops. It was also possible to explore the conference site Weimar (Classical period, Bauhaus, Weimar Republic, Nazi dictatorship, ...) on foot or by bike.
Florian Pühringer's talk
On the second day, our colleague Florian Pühringer gave a short presentation on "GIS-based analysis of neighbourhood-related mobility measures with GPS tracking data" using the example of aspern Seestadt and the mobility survey aspern Seestadt, opens an external URL in a new window.
The mobility panel is a smartphone-based mobility survey with supplementary questionnaires on personal and household characteristics. The aim of this long-term survey is to collect data on the mobility behaviour of the residents of the new urban development area at neighbourhood level. In particular, high-resolution GPS tracking data are among the results of the survey.
With the help of the insights, especially the GPS tracking data, the strategic goals of mobility concepts can be compared with reality, i.e. the actual mobility behaviour. For example, conclusions can be drawn about the use of the collective garages in aspern Seestadt.
The visualisation of the recorded, detailed mobility patterns helps to show the effects of mobility measures, to support arguments or to recognise necessary adjustments so that strategic goals are actually met. Storymaps, opens an external URL in a new window are particularly vivid and therefore well suited as a visualisation option.
