Annual DyMoN project meeting

Uppsala, Sweden. Sunny weather, a green and bicycle friendly old town, and phantastic hosts. We could not imagine a better setting for the annual DyMoN project meeting taking place on May 22nd and 23rd. Together with partners from multiple, very different domain backgrounds, we have been researching and developing situation-aware nudges for promoting sustainable mobility [...]

Z_GIS plenary meeting

After almost two years of more or less home office and limited contact opportunities, the whole Z_GIS team could finally meet again in mid-May. A lot has happened since the last plenary meeting: the new Faculty of Digital and Analytical Sciences has been founded and we have been integrated into it, with Prof. Thomas Blaschke [...]

High-school student as researcher

University research does not take place in an ivory tower. At the Mobility Lab, it is our pleasure to really live open research and to involve curious people from 'outside'. In the POSITIM research project, we are developing and testing a mixed methods approach for investigating the effects of measures in road space. Not on [...]

Bicycle Observatory nominated for VCÖ Award

"Who is riding when, where, and why?" remains a difficult question when it comes to cycling at the local and regional scale. This fact is surprising given the central importance of bicycle mobility in transforming the transportation sector into a sustainable system and the already relatively high modal share of cycling. The research project Bicycle [...]

Invitation to ‘Radiofabrik’

Last week, Ursula Witzmann-Müller and Martin Loidl were invited to Radiofabrik, Salzburg's independent radio station. The conversation with the host revolved - in keeping with the current focus on cycling in the series unerhört! - cycling as an everyday means of transport, research on the topic, the contribution of geoinformatics, and the current challenges and [...]

Simulating Spatio-Temporal Patterns of Bicycle Flows

Increasing the mode share of bicycles is regarded as a solution to mitigate car-induced, urban problems, such as congestions, noise emission, pollution, etc. In order to come up with evidence-based planning processes and decisions, the “where” and “when” cyclists are on the road need be quantified. Bicycle traffic volumes of one simulation day in [...]

Cycling to work

The publication of key results from our GISMO study in the renowned Scandinavian Journal of Medicine & Science in Sports has also attracted the attention of the national press. In times of the corona pandemic, in which distancing and sedentary lifestyles are very relevant for our everyday life, commuting by bike turns out to be [...]

Bicycle Observatory – Successful Finish

The Bicycle Observatory project was successfully completed at the end of September 2020. We tackled several research questions and achieved exciting results during the past 30 months. Formally, all tasks described in the project proposal were completed. However, lots of new questions arose, which will keep us busy for the time ahead. Of course, the [...]
