Cyclist route analysis using the geographical information systems: a Brazilian city case study
This paper describes a methodology to analyse the cyclist routes using a Geographical Information System software (GIS). It is intend to establish the relationship between the travel forecasting Transportation Models and the Cycleways Methodologies that will consider some specific Cyclist travels characteristics and provide new information which could be used in a treatment of this kind of travel. In this context the GIS has the fundamental role, once it is able to identify and modelling Cyclist Transportation Network. In this way, GIS works such as integration element within the methodology to cycleway study.
