"Geographic Information Systems Applications in Transport Planning"
This special issue aims to provide the opportunity to showcase research topics related to the development of GIS-based methodologies in the field of transport planning. These GIS-based applications allow to evaluate the effects of sustainable urban mobility on the inhabitants of a city, regional or national transport plans, interconnected modes of transport, or the effects of climate change on transport, among others. Both original research and review papers are welcome. Research topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Active and non-motorized mobility
- Public transport
- Changes in territorial accessibility
- Strategic environmental assessment
- Environmental impacts of transport
