Abstract

GPS tracking and spatial analysis of people's behavior in parks is relative new but extremely promising research field. Due to the rapid developed of the GPS technology and falling price on the GPS units it is now possible, easy, and with low costs to track the location of people's behavior and movement patterns with great accuracy when they are using parks and other types of urban environments. The geographical precision of the data, and the combination of spatial relations and time use allows new types of analysis and inference for the improvement of site surveys and planning.
