Project description

Route planning systems (web-based or mobile) have strongly influenced the process of pre-planning ways in everyday life. Beside route planning systems for car navigation, the rapid development of mobile services supported the emergence of solutions for pedestrians in the last years. However, in existing systems the flexibility of pedestrians to identify the optimal route between a point A and a point B is limited because of a small set of path selection criteria. Especially gender-specific requirements caused by differences in mobility behaviour are not taken into account by existing systems. Travel time or distance is not the only criteria for choosing a route. Influencing factors may also include footpath width, avoiding unsafe areas, turn minimization, etc. Thus, this was the motivation for starting the project FEMroute. It focuses on gender-specific route selection criteria and deals with gender-sensitive route planning in general. Additionally, the project has the goal to extend the data basis for pedestrian navigation by providing adapted route information for the target group by means of OpenStreetMap.

FEMroute Keys (Choice)

Following new FEMroute properties are linked to streets in OSM:

  • facade: very attractive/attractive/not attractive (if the facade is neutral, then no tag is set)
  • parking lane: yes (if there is no parking lane, the no tag is set)
  • ambiance: beautiful/ugly (if the ambiance is neutral, then no tag is set)
  • busy: very busy/busy/not busy (if the area is neither very busy, busy nor not busy, then no tag is set)
  • view: narrow (if the view is not narrow, then no tag is set, which means the view in this area is open)
  • footway:left: > 2.5 meters, < 2.5 meters, < 2 meters
  • footway:right: > 2.5 meters, < 2.5 meters, < 2 meters
