Mapping in sustainable mobility

Mapping is a key tool for territorial analysis, mobility and essential for future mobility proposals.

Essential and key role since its beginnings, mapping is the graphic and scaled display of a city or a territory, without it the development of urban spaces would be impossible.

It offers a wide range of possibilities in the field of sustainable mobility, ranging from knowing the density of the population, where the busiest areas of cities are, knowing the black spots of accidents and responding to the installation of future bicycle parking facilities.

At Mobility By Cycling Friendly we also offer this service to our clients by carrying out all types of GIS (Geographic Information Systems).

But what is a GIS?

GIS replace traditional mapping. These are systems that are used through categorised, geo-referenced data with the objective of displaying and analysing information through a map.

Maps are used to communicate and to understand the study that is being carried out.

What is the role of a GIS in Spatial Planning?

They help to understand a territory, its weaknesses and threats that are the object of study.

And in sustainable mobility?

Any mobility study or Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan shouls contain a comprehensive cartographic annex. Different map types are often used for sustainable mobility:

  • Choropleths map.
  • Flow map.
  • Thematic maps.
  • Heat maps.

What does this annex entail?

We introduce you to different examples of mapping used for sustainable mobility:

  • Bike lane network.
  • Population density maps.
  • Heat maps to determine population flow.
  • Buffered accessibility areas.

Mobility By Cycling Friendly uses a wide range of mapping possibilities for our work.

Today we would like to introduce you to part of our work, essential to provide mobility solutions for large cities, municipalities and companies.
