This paper describes an agent-based model for the simulation of pedestrian movement in city centers for various types of visitors. It takes into account preferences of different types of pedestrians. The model is tested and calibrated using GNSS data of pedestrians collected during a field experiment in the city of Delft. Although the model as...

Recent technological advances have increased the quantity of movement data being recorded. While valuable knowledge can be gained by analysing such data, its sheer volume creates challenges. Geovisual analytics, which helps the human cognition process by using tools to reason about data, offers powerful techniques to resolve these challenges....

In an era of increasing competition between urban cores, positive pedestrian experiences become crucial in attracting visitors and retaining residents. The dichotomy between use and evaluation of public spaces enables the prioritisation of urban design and management interventions in an age of austerity. When spaces are highly used but evaluated...

City centres are changing. More and more do they compete with suburban centres or other cities. Jan Gehl has proven that making historic cities car-free AND improving the conditions for pedestrians is a vital strategy (Hoeven et al, 2008). Since 2000 the City of Delft is implementing car-free zones in the historic city centre (with a lot of...

Het hoogbouwbewoners-onderzoek verkent hoe bewoners van woontorens in het centrum van Rotterdam de binnenstad gebruiken en waarderen. Doel is om een beter inzicht te krijgen in het gebruik van de binnenstad op verschillende tijdstippen en met verschillende modaliteiten. Voor het eerst is het verplaatsingsgedrag van meer dan vijftig bewoners in...

The aim of this paper is to express the application of tracking technologies in Urban Design and Planning. Tracking technologies can be used to monitor different user groups in different occasions. Since 2005, TU Delft has explored and developed two types of research using GPS to collect spatio temporal data in urban environments : (1) visitors...

Every environment has its own characteristics and people react individually to that structure; in an interactive, passive or avoiding way. This paper focuses on pedestrian movement in the city centre of Delft, the Netherlands. It is dedicated to find new and exciting ways of improving city centres for pedestrians by using a Global Positioning...

While urban design and planning focuses strongly on actor-oriented and user - oriented design and planning approaches, technologies that give insight into the behaviour of actors and users are rapidly evolving. Especially the use of tracking technologies - of which GPS is best known - is booming in urban research. Most research focuses on the...

Van der Spek, S. (author)
In Toronto and Melbourne I presented the development of a method to track pedestrians using GPS. Finally, in June and October 2007 pedestrians visiting the historic city centres of Norwich, Rouen and Koblenz were monitored. In total over 1300 pedestrians were observed using GPS technology. With a questionnaire we were able to collect additional...

Tracking technologies such as GPS, mobile phone tracking, video and RFID monitoring are rapidly becoming part of daily life. Technological progress offers huge possibilities for studying human activity patterns in time and space in new ways. Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) held an international expert meeting in early 2007 to...

Pedestrian mobility and the regeneration of the European city centre. Cities can be chaotic and confusing places at the best of times – even for local people! Spatial Metro, a project largely funded by the EU, aims to make city visits more enjoyable for pedestrians by making cities easier to navigate, easier to walk around and easier to...
