Discover the power of GPS Technology for Demand Data Collection!

On occasion of the upcoming 9th World Urban Forum (WUF9) in Kuala Lumpur/Malaysia, we are happy to launch the SUTP Technical Document #17: “Using GPS Technology for Demand Data Collection”.

Travel demand data is a necessary basis for urban mobility planning, but especially in developing and emerging economies data availability is often weak or non-existing. The Global Positioning System (GPS) technology offers a cheap alternative for data collection to traditional diary or survey methods. This document elaborates on advantages and disadvantages of the approach. Also different aspects of the post-processing of GPS data in order to determine trips, mode choice and trip purposes are discussed. Authors are Jakob Baum, currently advisor at GIZ in Jordan, with a background in data-enabled mobility consultancy, and Enrico Howe, mobility researcher and consultant at the Innovation Centre for Mobility and Societal Change (InnoZ) with one of his foci being on smartphone based mobility survey.

With this you will even get those on board who say: “Walking, cycling or public transport is inconvenient and uncomfortable in comparison to driving to work with my own car.” It is for mind-sets like these, why promoting car use instead of more sustainable ways of travelling within cities are still common practice, overseeing that the long term effects are even more uncomfortable. Let us change this!
