Application of Spatial Mobility Research as a Tool for Site Planning on a Micro-Regional Level

Spatial mobility research on a micro-regional and sub-regional level represents a strong tool for transport planning allowing flexible and effective reaction to the transport needs of citizens. This article deals with the methodologies of the implementation of spatial mobility research on a municipal level (municipalities and city districts) and the options of using the results for regional development needs. Untraditionally the main emphasis is not on the central metropolitan regions but rather on the contrary, on the rural areas where the principal factor to be focused on is not smooth traffic, but the accessibility of all places. This factor is connected with the risk of social exclusion of the less mobile country inhabitants resulting in a decrease in their quality of life. A well performed spatial mobility research on the micro-regional to sub-regional level may function as a traffic SWOT analysis, though, pointing out risks connected with the mobility of the population and revealing opportunities for regional development stimulation.
