One of the major issues in the development of mobile pedestrian
navigation services concerns the poor understanding of pedestrian spatiotemporal behaviour. Findings reveal that human route choice behaviour relies on a huge variety of influence factors. Therefore, common concepts like those used in car navigation systems will not conform to the requirements of pedestrians, as people on foot do not necessarily prefer the shortest path. This paper introduces an ongoing study focussing upon a multi-method approach towards the observation and interpretation of pedestrian walking patterns and
route decision behaviour. The results will serve as a basis for the development of a typology of pedestrian spatio-temporal behaviour, which will allow the provision of customised navigational and environmental information in pedestrian navigation services.
