English abstract:
The complexity of pedestrian spatio-temporal behaviour calls for the combination of several complementary empirical methods in order to comprehensively understand human motion behaviour patterns and underlying motives, habits and intentions. This is essential for the development of mobile spatial information technologies, as the huge amount of potentially available information has to be filtered
and customised to individual needs. Therefore, in this contribution a currently ongoing project aiming at the classification of pedestrian walking behaviour and related influence factors is described. We illustrate the multi-methods-approach applied in this study and present experimental results based on a dataset of more than 100 trajectories of pedestrians observed in indoor and outdoor environments as well as results of a survey containing 130 interviews.

The project uses a multi-method triangulation approach in order to obtain comprehensive insight to human spatio-temporal behaviour. Firstly, a brief overview concerning most common methods in pedestrian monitoring is given. Secondly, the current approach is described and each employed method and related preliminary results are presented. Finally, an outlook concerning forthcoming steps is given and the main
conclusions at this stage of the study are discussed.
