Analysing, visualising and modelling of the transport phenomena can greatly enhance understandings of transport systems. New methods, software and applications are empowering more people than ever to map past, current and future travel behaviour. This session seeks papers which harness this recent wave of innovation to ‘add value’ to our understandings of transport policy and practice. The focus could be on the data (e.g. Open Street Map), new technologies or new conceptual insight into the role of GIS in Transport. Equally, new findings about the policies needed at a local level, using map based visual outputs, are welcome.
The practical workshop will showcase the evolving power and accessibility of free and open source software for geospatial (FOSS4G) for transport applications – please bring your own laptop with QGIS, R and other tools installed to this workshop.
