Konzept „+pol“

Die Arbeit „+pol – Multimodale Mobilitätsstationen am Beispiel der Stadt Freiburg im Breisgau“ beschäftigt sich mit der Herausforderung, „Multimodale Mobilität“ und das Phänomen der „Seamless Mobility“ (nahtlose bzw. nahezu übergangslose Mobilität) in der Stadt Freiburg umzusetzen. Weiterhin soll die Frage geklärt werden wie diese Ansätze in Verbindung mit der Schaffung eines neuartigen und modernen Signets namens „+pol“ baulich verwirklicht werden können. Das Konzept ist stark umsetzungsbezogen und ist auf acht ausgewählte Standorte fokussiert. Aus diesem Grund soll der Entwurf den Freiburger Bürgern als auch der dortigen Verwaltung zunächst eine erste Diskussionsgrundlage bieten, das Vorhaben von „Seamless Mobility“ künftig umsetzen zu können. Bei der konzeptionellen Ausarbeitung wurde schnell deutlich, dass besonders auf Aufenthalts- sowie Lebensqualität in der Stadt Freiburg geachtet werden musste: Haltestellen stellen nicht mehr bloß herkömmliche Umsteigeplätze dar, sie sind vielmehr als Orte der Begegnung und der Kommunikation zu verstehen, welche die gesamtstädtische Wahrnehmung auf ein herausragendes Image in die Öffentlichkeit tragen. Um dies ermöglichen, spielten eine verbesserte Vernetzung, neue Anreize, optimierte Verbindungen und Bündelungen als auch die Integration von Nahversorgung oder Kiosken eine große Rolle, um „Multimodale Mobilität“ und „Seamless Mobility“ in Freiburg im Breisgau zu
gewährleisten.

Viewer Portal

Cross-border integration was and still is one key aspects of the EU. It is the focus of this study to show the efforts of a German-French border-region for a better integration and its use of geoweb based services by planners. One of the first projects in their new constitution was to develop a common, cross-border management for the commercial zones. The idea was, to create a technical platform like a portal that contains a coherent raw-dataset with centrally managed geodata and decentralized managed metadata. The homogenising data (same projection mode and the method of collection) is displayed on an “Administration- Portal”. This is only accessible for the communities and they are in force to insert their own data. The strong focus on elf-administration should aim for a better acceptance of such a portal and especially the way of working and collaborating. Hence, there will be not a typical top-down-oriented result because every member will be in charge of the quality of their own data and will feel responsible for it. In addition to that, a “Viewer-Portal” with possibility for data-request is developed to inform the population and investors and in a marketing purpose. Management of the commercial zones could be a first step to a more complex portal with all kind of different data that could be used by planners to develop new stategies for up to now unkown problems.

Smartband and GPS-Logger

More and more people are handicapped, because of a certain disabilities or the natural aging in the course of the enormous demographic change in industrial countries. Thus barrier-free-planning is a concrete goal in the German urban planning system. The research work at hand “methodical and practical foundation for the establishment of the EmBaGIS” deals with the development of a new, innovative planning instrument to identify and optimize urban spatial barriers for handicapped people. The concrete aim includes a conscious composition of the planning specified “top-down-“and bottom-up-approach” with the target to activate handicapped people in a participative method. The “bottom-up-approach” is based on a broad theoretical foundation, including the research fields of barrier-specified urban planning, subjective well-being and the field of emotional research. The question to the point is: How can we mark and evaluate urban spatial barriers in a valid and objective way to the concrete advantage of urban planning authority? In order to indentify barriers in the eye of the persons concerned, it is vital to know when and where a urban spatial barrier produces negative emotional reactions, e.g. a stress reaction. To achieve this, psycho-physiological monitoring is at the core of an Emotional Barrier GIS (EmBaGIS), using a sensor wristband to unobtrusively measure autonomic bodily functions as indicators for emotional reactions. Additionally, a GPS-Logger indicates the geographic position of the measured negative emotions. This approach was evaluated in two studies, concerning in the first study visually impaired and blind people (n=39), in the second study people with walking disabilities (n=21). Empirically, EmBaGIS is based on an “Empirical Three-Level-Analysis” to identify emotionally significant barriers. The first level is the measurement of the speed of movement. The hypothesis is raised that a decrease of kinetic walking energy is a first sign for the impact with a spatial barrier. On a second level skin conductance responses, indicating heightened attention demand, are described and on the third level skin temperature changes are used as indicators for stress. The results of our empirical studies show, that the EmBaGIS, based on psycho-physiological monitoring, adds to the identification of urban spatial barriers. By this experiences of handicapped people can be taken into consideration for urban planning processes.

In the analysis of new ways of interaction, the paper focuses on mobile participation (mPartizipation) and possibilities for civil engagement through smartphones. In the first part it outlines the changes in communication, based on mobile devices and social media tools. After a short overview about the merging of relevant technologies (GeoWeb, Social Media and Mobile Technologies) it defines the new mobile citizen and iscusses the “surplus of mobility” in participation. In its second part, the paper presents two real-world projects, dealing with this mParticipation approach. It closes with a analysis of chances and limits created through mParticipation. The Paper is connected to the author´s Phd-thesis about mParticipation and sums up the first results. The intention of the paper is to present the changes for urban planning, which are already happening. Out of that the paper gives an overview of new ways of participation, and questions the (negative and positives) consequences for urban planners and the administration.

Overlay of a 2d cadaster information in LAYAR

New technologies like smartphones provide a variety of opprtunities for the traditional fields of work and methods in urban and spatial planning. It is important to analyse the changes in geobased information and communication platforms to understand their potential impact on scientific methods in spatial planning. One of these new technologies is the so called mobile augmented reality. This papers focuses on the methods and technologies which are available for merging the real world with virtual objects/information. Which benefits are possible for urban planning by using mobile geoweb applications and augmented reality? Is it possible to lower the participation hurdle for citizen contributions regarding planning processes? Besides, the question is whether built-in sensors in mobile devices can deliver meaningful data for planning and for the so called “urban sensing.” The combination of data from different sources, mainly aquired through the World Wide Web, results in new opportunities to display and analyse information in a mixed reality enviroment, as well as to interact with this information. The paper presents an evaluation of existing mobile augmented reality applications and gives various examples of potential use cases for these applications in urban planning. Through the newly developed RADAR system, it is possible to contribute information to different mobile augemented reality services and thereby it serves as an example to present scenarios and to illustrate the presented findings.

Human as Sensors

Continuous observation and monitoring of developments and changes in quality of spatial phenomena has always been a central task in the urban, spatial and environmental planning at various scales. Similar to the discussion about “Web 2.0″, “monitoring” will be used in a very intense discussion of innovative planning methods. It means observation of a phenomenon over a longer period, with the result of using the knowledge gained on forecasts for a reactive or constructive control. As mentioned in the conference topic, cities, regions and spatial phenomenas do have changes and lifecycles. Though, what are changes and how could they be identified and measured? Monitoring of these issues could be the key to that and will gain more importance in the future of planning. Observation processes and furthermore, issues like smart cities and energy efficiency gains incremental importance in the context of urban planning. The amount of potential useable data for planners is growing and there will the question how to make use of it. Especially the upcoming presence and rise of sensor data will contribute to that. In times of the GeoWeb, the use of mobile based planning methods for communication and collecting data, GPS, tracking, the analysis of time in spatial planning and “smart sensoring” will gain importance: How humans can be used as an “intelligent sensor” for a better planning through the use of smartphones for example. Issues like inductive monitoring and crowdsourcing in this context with the potentials of social communities together with location based services (social geography) will be observed as well. The task for planners will be to identify what kind of data is important and how to deal with heterogeneous data in general and how to interpret it. However, there will be a lot of research for the question, what role planners could play on this interface between real and digital world. This study will give an overview about new fields of research for planners and how monitoring in this spatial and urban planning context could be used wisely.
