Social Media Big Data Based Transport Infrastructure Design

Authors : Jan Eermak

Abstract: Practical solutions to the problem of developing a transport infrastructure brings a lot of analysis before the proposal of the transport infrastructure. Initial analysis should cover it from what places and what ways is moving segmented group of people, the future user’s infrastructure. Currently, the monitoring of displacement of the population using census and traffic surveys results. This study describes method how to use new data sources for transport infrastructure planning. The first one is using of geolocation data from social networks for transport infrastructure planning and compare it with the current transport infrastructure planning. The second data source is open data from municipalities. This data sources could be combined together. There are many advantages and disadvantages and this study discussed both pros and cons. Benefits include low costs of data from social network, data are continuously accessible and could be reached in real time. The disadvantages include small data population covering most users are from cities, coverage of villages is worst.
