Analysis of Human Space-Time Behavior: Geovisualization and Geocomputational Approaches

ByMei-Po Kwan, Fang Ren

The study of human activities and movements in space and time in the urban context has long been an important theme in social science research. It covers a wide range of topics, such as migration, residential mobility, shopping, travel, and commuting behavior. A major difficulty in the analysis of human space-time behavior (HSTB) is that individual movement in space-time is a complex trajectory with many interacting dimensions. These include the location, timing, duration, sequencing, and type of activities and trips. This characteristic of HSTB has made the simultaneous
