Abstract

We suggest a new method using GPS to investigate human activities in an urban area. The time and space data of tourists' migration in a specific tourist area from GPS are focused on. The data are visualized on GIS so that 'Nigiwai' activity can be analyzed including notion of time. From the analysis, places where pedestrians tend to stay longer or move slower, and those where they don't, are found. As a case study, we analyze activity in Kamakura City using the suggested method, and examine the possibilities of application for the urban space design.
