Improving GIS-based Models for Bicycling Speed Estimations

On the 12th of October, new results from the collaboration between Bendik Manum from NTNU, Petter Arnesen from SINTEF, Tobias Nordstrom from NTNU/Spacescape, and Jorge Gil from Chalmers, were presented at the European Transport Conference 2018, in Dublin, Ireland. The paper presents a bicycling speed model that combines parameters from two recent bikeability modelling studies. The new combined model is estimated using GPS tracking of real bicycle trips in combination with GIS-based data of bicycle route networks and of the local urban form parameters along the routes. This results in more detailed and realistic speed estimations than with previous models.
