Central places of transit riders: a visual story of Brisbane, Australia

22 Dec 2016
Description

This study uses smartcard data to quantify and visualize the most popular destinations (‘central places’) and corridors of transit riders in Brisbane, an emerging global city in Queensland, Australia. It shows that the number and distribution of central places vary significantly across different periods of the day and so are their respective scopes of influence, which are measured by a standard deviational ellipse, and the associated transit corridors, which connect visitors of central places to other locales in the city. As a whole, this study shows the potential of smartcard data in efficiently verifying and even extending existing economic geography theories, models or concepts.
