Impact modeling of urban and mobility development: Improving the accessibility of residential and work places through car-sharing offers

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Carsten Gertz

Urban and mobility development is an integrated holistic system. This necessitates a holistic planning practice.,Despite mutual influence, planning processes only proceed in practice alongside each other. The research addresses this issue and examines the influence and challenge of the urban development programme "Re-urbanization of production" and the rising mobility form of "Car-Sharing". The research examines the central question: Can low-traffic production sites be activated / improve accessibility through car-sharing offers?

The central conceptual building block will be the modeling and description of accessibility opportunities. The aim is to show the extent to which car sharing affects the urban target quality of "accessibility" and how to activate under-supplied production sites. First, an analysis of potential areas for new production sites in Hamburg and a simulation of existing accessibility will be developed. In the next step, the availability of car-sharing services will be extended to include poorly accessible production locations, as a supplement to public transport. At the same time, new findings about a possible improvement in accessibility are gained in this prognostic simulation. The influence will be visualized in a combined master thesis by Lukas Schaber using the analysis and forecasting tool CityScope.

Development and Visualization of Dynamic Impact Models on CityScopes

The aim of the thesis is to develop a workflow for the dynamic calculation and visualization on a CityScope of impact models. This workflow is being exemplarily developed with the accessibility model of Michael Salchow, which deals with the accessibility of workplaces through public transport, or with the improvement of this accessibility by CarSharing. The challenge in this work is less the visualization of the status quo, but the dynamic recalculation of effects when the input parameters are changed. The main focus is principally on the technical development and programming of this workflow and less on the development or adaptation of a realistic model.

Area Search for Refugee Housing

Spaces for refugee accommodation. Applying interactive, data-driven city models in citizen participation through the example of the project “FindingPlaces”. A contribution to the solution of a planning challenge within the context of the current refugee debate?

The heated and emotional debate on refugee accommodation motivated Hamburg’s First Mayor to initiate a citizen dialogue to openly discuss where and how to accommodate refugees in the future. Within several participatory workshops, interactive city models (“CityScopes”) were used to identify potential spaces for refugee accommodation. This master thesis evaluates to what extent the application of CityScopes as a new digital technology can effectively support planning processes in regard to social challenges and physical changes.
