New Technologies and Transportation Research

Applications of GPS in Travel Surveys Edited by Peter Stopher, Emeritus Professor of Transport Planning, Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies, The University of Sydney Business School, Australia
This book presents a collection of the most significant papers to have been published over the past fifteen years on the use of Global Positioning System (GPS) devices to measure person and vehicle travel. The carefully selected papers are prefaced by an original introduction. They track developments in the use of GPS devices to record travel and document some of the latest applications in which GPS is starting to replace conventional self-report surveys.
