How can better data and information increase active mobility?
Date: 12 November 2020, 3:00 -4:00 pm (HKT)
Good maps and wayfinding make it easier for people to make a modal choice. Showing all public transport alternatives encourages modal shift by simplifying the transport system and making sustainable choices easier. By integrating wayfinding with public transport information the whole journey can be linked up and made seamless.
In this seminar, Alain Chiaradia, Associate Professor in the Department of Urban Planning and Design, Faculty of Architecture at the HKU, will introduce a “volumetric pedestrian network supply model” which extends from Sheung Wan to Wan Chai. In this first model, different levels of definition (LOD) of the pedestrian network and pedestrian flow will be presented from 3D outdoor to complete 3D outdoor and indoor.
Tony Pearce, Vice President of City Wayfinding, T-Kartor, Sweden, will share insights on city wayfinding systems which people use to navigate on foot, by bike or public transport, and encourage modal shift away from private car use. He will demonstrate how multi-modal wayfinding information is produced, managed and maintained from a core data-driven production system.
