The Urban Freight Landscape Atlas
P.I. Name & Address
The purpose of the urban freight landscape atlas is to provide a collection of maps providing a comparative perspective about key elements impacting city logistics across the four metropolitan areas of the MF project.
The first stage of the project focuses on the design of a composite map template as well as the production of three comparative maps: 1) Population density, 2) Employment density, and 3) Population density/employment density grid. The second stage will aim at producing more complex sets of maps related to the transport infrastructure, and elements of urban freight transport supply and demand.
Each metro area is providing a GIS dataset (developed in the first year) using the same units of reference (metric; km and square km) and the same scale. For the US, census tracks are the unit of analysis. For Seoul and Paris, units that are a close as possible to census tracts and for which data are available were selected: the district for Seoul and municipalities for Paris. The time unit for the datasets is around 2010. Time series may be analyzed later on as more data is collected and made available.
