A paper titled “A GIS-based methodology for identifying pedestrians’ crossing patterns” co-authored by S.Lassare, E.Bonnet, F.Bodin, E.Papadimitriou, G.Yannis and J.Golias is just published in the scientific journal: Computers, Environment and Urban Systems. The objective of this research is the development and testing of appropriate indicators of pedestrian crossing behavior along urban trips, and a methodology for collecting and processing the data required for the analysis of this behavior. The results suggest specific patterns of pedestrian crossing behavior, such as the tendency to cross at the beginning of the trip and the tendency to cross at mid-block locations when signalized junctions are not available. The results are further discussed in terms of urban planning and management implications. It is concluded that the proposed approach is very efficient for the analysis of pedestrian crossing behavior in urban areas. doi
