ABSTRACT
The paper deals with the issue of movement of citizens of two main cities in the Czech Republic. The study is based on the questionnaire survey within which responses from more than 500 respondents in each city were collected. The questionnaire consisted of basic questions (information about respondents and their opinion) and of detailed information about transport behavior (e.g. the beginnings and ends of the most common routes, the most visited sites, etc.), which were further processed using spatial analysis. The key part of the questionnaire was focused on the travel diary, where respondents have described various routes during a typical working day and on a weekend. Totally more than 4,000 particular routes were collected.
The paper describes the results of a study of transport behavior, solved in the research project (Spatial simulation modeling of accessibility). By using GIS methods (kernel density estimation) and by using software V-Analytics new information about the citizens’ movement was identified. Obtained findings and outputs include information about main directions of movement and most visited places (hot spots for several activities and several transport means). Achieved outputs may serve as an additional source of information useful for many planning activities like creation of urban plans or optimization of the transport systems in the cities.
