The main focus of the workshop 2013 was to discuss and define sets of indicators and the methods that allow capturing reliable and valid data. Objective was the outline of an International Walking Data Standard to be created.
The workshop was jointly organised with Rob Methorst, who arranged a follow-up meeting of the Pedestrian Quality Needs project (COST 358) and the OECD/ITF Pedestrian group (see program).
After an introduction by Rob Methorst and Daniel Sauter, Tim Pharoah presented his idea of creating a Pedestrian Data Charter. This was followed by an introduction and pre-selection of indicators on the national and city/town level by Miles Tight and Daniel Sauter. Ryan Martinson and Tim Pharoah presented a similar introduction for the street & neighbourhood level. It was agreed that the indicators on the national/city level can be standardised but not those on the street/neighbourhood level. Tim Pharoah’s proposal for a Pedestrian Data Charter was adopted with enthusiasm and renamed to be become an International Walking Data Standard.
