Aims, contents and method of the course

Planning methods and transport planning surveys deliver information about spatial structures, about vegetation equipment, about appropriation and use of (public) spaces, as well as about the day-to-day mobility of people. Beside planning methods, qualitative social research and its methods also are important.
During the lecture town planning and transport planning methods, e.g. the KONTIV design, relevant for the traffic planning and mobility research, and other mobility and travel surveys, methods, like clearance mappings, mappings of utilisation, plan analyses will be introduced and will be checked from the gender perspective. At a concrete project area in Vienna, the 20th Viennese municipal district (Brigittenau), the students will test different planning methods, will get to know their advantages and disadvantages, will carry out own pieces of research and evaluate them. It is foreseen to present the results of the lecture also to relevant people from the 20th district of Vienna.
