Plakanda − Swiss GPS data set for Zurich, Winterthur, Geneva and their surroundings
Axhausen, Kay W.
- Working Paper
This GPS data was originally collected by a private company in order to analyse the potential success of places for advertisement, this is a nice example of GPS data being interesting for a wide range of analysis and purposes. The data set was then used to develop the POSition DAta Processing framework. GPS tracks were collected from 2004 to 2006 using person-based trackers, meaning that all modes of transport are recorded. More than 30’000 days of data were recorded by 4892 volunteers living in the region of Zurich (including Winterthur) and Geneva. Only position data (x, y, z) and timestamps are available (no accuracy measures). As the data was not collected as part of a travel survey, the diary information is missing, that is no annotations, neither start and end times nor transport mode or trip purpose are available for validation Show more
