Sense making of GPS Data in a GIS environment; analysis of outdoor movements in space and transport network based distances

The objective of the course is to provide students with insight in the principles of sense making of GPS Data in a GIS environment; analysis of outdoor movements in space and transport network based distances.

Collection of travel/movement data is nowadays made easy through the use of GPS-loggers and Smartphones. This course aims to collect, clean and enrich these datasets with GIS by combining locational data with existing land use and transport datasets. Possible applications lie in the research domains of zoology, transport geography, health sciences, logistics, etc. Topics covered are refreshing knowledge of ArcGIS 10.4, Use of smartphone Tracking Apps and GPS-loggers, importing into ArcGIS and projecting of GPS data, matching of GPS data with land use maps and transport network maps in ArcGIS, introduction to special software tool Flowmap 7.4.2, , data conversion to Flowmap, data cleaning and route reconstruction with Flowmap, data and result presentation in ArcGIS

Tags: gis, gps, gps-tracking, importing and projecting of gps data, proximity analysis, diary reconstruction, transport network analysis, route reconstruction
