Research on Method of Pedestrian Traffic Analysis Zone Division and Traffic Intensity Estimation

In a four-step traffic planning model, the division of traffic analysis zones is primarily based on motorized traffic travel. Therefore, there is a need to study the none-motorized traffic zones. The paper defines the pedestrian traffic analysis zone, summarizes the principles of the pedestrian traffic zone division and proposes a division method based on pedestrian attracting/producing points. The division method includes three steps. Initially, the service radiuses of attracting/producing points are determined and unit zones are formed. Then, an envelope is established for the unit zones which have overlapping areas. Eventually, according to division principles, the boundary of the pedestrian traffic analysis zone is determined. A method of pedestrian travel intensity estimation of the traffic analysis zones is also proposed in this paper which is helpful for determining the pedestrian priority hierarchy and developing pedestrian priority measures.
