Social segregation research has a long tradition in urban studies. Usually, these studies focus on the residential dimension, using official registries (e.g., census data), which show population distribution at night. Nevertheless, these studies disregard the fact that the population in cities is highly mobile, and its spatial distribution dramatic...

World tourism dynamics are in constant change, as well as they are deeply shaping the trajectories of cities. The "call effect" for having the World Heritage status has boosted tourism in many cities. The large number of visitors and the side effects, such as the overcrowding of central spaces, are arousing the need to develop and protect heritage...

Download at: https://eprints.ucm.es/50782 || Congestion in the road network is a phenomenon caused by a demand approximating or exceeding what is offered by the different elements forming the network at that instant. Traffic moves at speeds lower than free-flow situations, and thus, the time required to travel congested arcs increases. Congestion...

Accessibility by high-speed rail (HSR) depends not only on station-to-station travel time, but also on access and egress times, which can be determining factors in total journey travel time. However, studies focusing on accessibility analyses of access/egress times to/from stations are less extended in the literature and centre mainly on the influe...

Accessibility is essentially a dynamic concept. However, most studies on urban accessibility take a static approach, overlooking the fact that accessibility conditions change dramatically throughout the day. Due to their high spatial and temporal resolution, the new data sources (Big Data) offer new possibilities for the study of accessibility. The...

Article
Every day, a significant part of the population in large cities suffers transport congestion. One effect of this is a change in the spatial distribution of accessibility, which may lead to people or businesses finding themselves temporally in areas where accessibility values are lower than either desired or required. This paper studies changes in a...

The map presented in this paper shows the effect of congestion on daily accessibility in the London metropolitan area on Wednesdays. Because of its dynamic nature, it is challenging to both calculate the effects of this phenomenon and to represent it clearly on simple maps. Although we can use many traditional techniques for this purpose, they are...

Accessibility is a key concept in urban and regional planning due to its capacity to link the activities that people or business need to the chances to effectively reach them. Accessibility, thus, simplifies the relationship between land use and transport and facilitates modelling the interaction of both systems. The spatiotemporal data availabilit...

Purpose Accessibility measurements are good tools for analysing the performance of possible policies on land use / transport / society systems. Until now, accessibility has been approached from a static perspective, even when variations in it depend on short term temporal changes in network function.

Este proyecto de investigación desarrolla una herramienta (basada en SIG e indicadores de accesibilidad) para evaluar los efectos de actuaciones en carreteras en función de los cambios en la accesibilidad territorial que dichas actuaciones producen. Esta herramienta permite cuantificar la accesibilidad a nivel regional, nacional e internacional, así como evaluar los cambios en accesibilidad que las mejoras en carreteras planeadas producen. Como aplicación de la herramienta, el proyecto incluye la evaluación de los impactos territoriales en Andalucía (a través de cambios en la accesibilidad) de las actuaciones en materia de transporte por carretera de la Consejería de Fomento y Vivienda de la Junta de Andalucía (Plan de Infraestructuras para la Sostenibilidad del Transporte en Andalucía, PISTA, 2007-2013), y del Ministerio de Fomento (Plan de Infraestructuras de Transporte y Vivienda, PITVI, 2012-2024) y redes transeuropeas.

MadridCycleTrack is an initiative launched with the aim of visualizing and analyzing the collective Madrid cyclists' track. Through this online platform, the initiative capture, visualize and analyze GPS routes of casual cyclists, bike-messengers and BiciMAD (Madrid Bike-Share System) users.
Project
The objective is to measure accessibility and mobility by transport mode at different time frames in order to integrate travel time data and the attractiveness of the destinations in dynamic accessibility indicators. For example, travel times are being extracted from TomTom Speed Profiles and Google Maps. In addition, OD matrices at different time frames will be built from geo-located tweets, credit cards, public transport cards and other sources in order to measure the spatio-temporal variability of the attractiveness of destinations and of the transport demand.
