Seminar 3 – Qualitative Data and Transport Modelling: Friday 12th April

One of the five workshop groups

Modelling on the Move 3: towards transport system transitions?
New modelling methods: what can qualitative data offer?

Slides and audio now available

This seminar focused on how we might use qualitative data within transport modelling; it began with talks from contributors from fields where the use of qualitative data in modelling is more established, as well as introducing issues relating to the analysis of secondary data more broadly. In the afternoon a hands-on session allowed participants to explore how samples of different types of transport-related qualitative data could be analysed for modelling purposes.
