Observation of pedestrian behaviour


There are different ways people use spaces. Some stay for a while, standing, sitting on benches or under trees that give them shadow. Others are on their way somewhere else, in transition. We want to know how pedestrians behave in certain places in Darmstadt, try out our latest form to map these behaviours.

You can read about counting, mapping, tracking, and other tools in Jan Gehl & Brigitte Svarre´s book How to study public life.

If you like working digitally, take a look at the People Watcher App!
