Mapping Pedestrian Activities and Safety in Melbourne

As part of GovHack 2015, we have also developed a new analytics and visualization project on pedestrian activities and safety.


City of Melbourne has more than 40 pedestrian count sensors installed across the city, monitoring pedestrian activity in real-time. In this project, we integrate pedestrian count data and pedestrian crash data (obtained from VicRoads, downloaded from Victorian Government Data Directory) to explore the temporal and spatial distribution of pedestrian activities and crashes.

See the interactive project page here: http://monash.edu/research/city-science/pedsafety/

We would like to take this project to the next step, applying advanced analytical techniques and develop a predictive model to forecast both pedestrian activities and safety. We appreciate any financial support from relevant stakeholders, especially City of Melbourne, to continue the project.
