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.

Just 34 Days left!

At the 22nd of May, the upcoming Transformative Urban Mobility Initiative’s (TUMI) WomenMobilizeWomen conference will be held in Leipzig/Germany at the side of the International Transport Forum (ITF).

We will welcome High-level transport policy experts such as Ms. Laura Ballesteros who worked as the Undersecretary of Planning in Mexico City to make mobility more universal and entrepreneurs like Ms. Kalpana Viswanath who co-founded SafetiPin and improved the safety of millions of women in India and other developing countries.

Practitioners like Ms. Esenam Nyador, better known as Miss Taxi Ghana, will report about her work as a female taxi driver in the male dominated taxi sector in Ghana. We are also very happy to have Ms. Amanda Ngabirano with us, who is a passionate advocate of the bicycle as a mode of transport, especially in Uganda’s capital Kampala.

The Conference will be the kick-off of a debate on the role and potential of women in sustainable urban mobility. Join us to discuss strategies to empower women in the transport sector and change mobility systems to cater to women's needs.
