Abstract:
Regional differentiation of the transport system. Sociogeographic regionalization and its relation to transport. Transport and local and regional development. Spatial interaction - theoretical and methodological framework. Mobility research - travel behavior, mode choice and the influence onto "modal-split." Modal competition. Practical use of transport-geographical analysis in transportation planning.
Objectives:
The aim is to introduce students to the transport-geography issues in particular in relation to transport planning. In addition to acquiring theoretical knowledge a part of the course also deals with the basic methods of transport geography research (e. g. regionalization, measurement of accessibility, regional transport service, and mode choice).
