Modeling of Transport Accessibility Using GIS and Open Data

Student: Natalia Shakhova

Supervisor: Tatiana Yakushkina

Faculty: Graduate School of Business

Educational Programme: Business Informatics (Bachelor)

Final Grade: 10

Year of Graduation: 2018

In recent decades, the number of people living in cities has grown steadily, and the cities themselves are growing accordingly. The current pace of the capital construction with the extremely high population densities often exceeds the pace of the transport system development which causes serious transportation problems for the greater number of developing cities. Faced with limited financial and land resources, these cities are increasingly taking up the challenge of the public transport development rather than broadening the transport networks. This graduate thesis is devoted to the public transit accessibility modelling, one of the common methods for evaluating welfare within the area of transport. The transit-oriented development approach is considered. The general purpose is to create a model of the public transit accessibility of Moscow based on the similar international examples. The main tools employed are the geographic information system, open data and data analysis tools. The obtained model could help urban and transport planners to understand the reasons for transportation problems, to help in their solving and to make city planning decisions more justified.
