Using coarse GPS data to quantify city-scale transportation system resilience to extreme events

  title={Using coarse GPS data to quantify city-scale transportation system resilience to extreme events},
  author={Brian Donovan and Daniel B. Work},
This article proposes a method to quantitatively measure the resilience of transportation systems using GPS data from taxis. The granularity of the GPS data necessary for this analysis is relatively coarse; it only requires coordinates for the beginning and end of trips, the metered distance, and the total travel time. The method works by computing the historical distribution of pace (normalized travel times) between various regions of a city and measuring the pace deviations during an unusual… CONTINUE READING
