Omschrijving Spatial information is increasingly important for understanding and solving issues in human geography and spatial planning. The use of GIS, gps and biosensor data enables collection of peoples movement and behaviour data with high precision. It enables us to better understand relationships between peoples' behaviour and their environment, movement patterns, and accessibility of places. In this course, current applications of movement data collected with activity trackers (incl. accelerometers, optical heart rate sensors, gps-devices) are discussed. Students learn how to collect and analyse spatial-temporal data themselves, and they learn to interpret and reflect on the results. It moreover is focussing on the implications, possibilities and limitations of choosing different methods of data collection (qualitative or quantitative), including the difference between self-reported response and measured response.
