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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
Fundamental GI research, which is directly transferred to an application domain. The recently started project comm-unity is exactly about this.

Additionally, the carpooling is linked to incentive [...]
All results of the clinical study, which was carried out as part of GISMO, have now been published as a special issue in the scientific journal Journal of Medicine & Science in Sports (Impact Factor 3,255). The eight published papers cover the following topics: An introduction and project presentation (Niederseer et al.) A review article [...]
Invited by the Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT), the GISMO project is featured at the biannual Transport Research Arena (TRA) in Vienna. Views and elements of the information platform. As part of the TRA exhibition, the Interactive Zone invites visitors and delegates to interactively experience mobility research. The participation in [...]
Cities are known as complex, densely populated environments with transport infrastructure playing a substantial role. Accompanying a new wave of shifting people’s travel behavior to healthy mobility, improved cycling transportation may positively alter the comfort of travelers. A model of traffic flow can help city planners to delineate spots where road rearrangement is required. [...]
Die Radroutinganwendung www.radlkarte.eu ist ein idealer Demonstrator von Modellen und Algorithmen die in der Arbeitsgruppe entwickelt wurden. Hier können Sie lesen, wie es "unter der Motorhaube" aussieht ...
