Acknowledgments: Thanks to Mike Goodchild and Dave Unwin for helpful comments on earlier versions of this chapter. Abstract: Geographic information systems (GIS) are convenient and potentially powerful platforms for transportation and urban analysis. Most GIS-based tools for transportation and urban analysis continue a place-based representation that is(More)
This series aims to capture new developments and applications in data mining and knowledge discovery, while summarizing the computational tools and techniques useful in data analysis. This series encourages the integration of mathematical, statistical, and computational methods and techniques through the publication of a broad range of textbooks, reference(More)
Transportation systems exist to improve individual accessibility. However, emerging applications of GIS in transportation (GIST) and intelligent transportation system (ITS) focus on throughput (the amount of system flow) rather than accessibility. Throughput is related but not equivalent to accessibility. Sensitive transportation planning requires rigorous,(More)
