We will first collect data for urban form variables such as land use and urban design attractors. Please download from the link below to get an example spreadsheet that contains both urban form and urban performance data.
- Define the study area : draw boundary of study area roughly 2000m from the site.
- Define the data entry sheets
- Define land use and urban design data to collect.
- Variables could include A
– land use category
– frontage quality
– entrance types
- Observe land use and urban design variables within the study area.
- Record data on data entry sheets
We will then collect data for urban performance variables such as pedestrian movement. Please download from the link below to get an example spreadsheet that contains both urban form and urban performance data.
- Define study area
- Define gate locations for the study area. This should include most of the streets at least 1200m – 2000m from the study area. A : draw the lines in a data entry sheet with a GateID and its corresponding segmentID.
- Define time period (ie 700-2000) and gate count durations (5mins per hour/10 mins per hour)
- Draw an imaginary line across the gate location B
- Observe pedestrians and cyclists for both directions separately across the full width of the space as shown in image 1 or across different pavements for 5 minutes/10minutes every hour.
- Record movement observation in data entry sheet. C
