Movement Analysis of Inhabitants in the Upper Silesia Agglomeration (Poland)

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 844)


Mobility preferences of residents of a specific area have a significant impact on the shaping of transport systems on a microscopic and macroscopic scale. Preference data is used to improve existing systems or design new ones that have an impact on improving the living standards of residents. This condition is one of the transport postulates. In order to present the analysis data on mobility preferences of the inhabitants of the Upper Silesian agglomeration were used.
