GREATER LONDON TRANSPORTATION SURVEY. 1. ORGANISATION AND MANAGEMENT OF THE SURVEYS

The greater London transportation survey undertaken during 1971-72 was, in technical content, a conventional transportation survey, but differed from other surveys in that it was the first major update in the U.S. Of a transportation data base: 1962 was the year of the London traffic survey. The main differences were in terms of planning, implementation, processing and procedure. During the planning stage a number of pilot surveys were commissioned to find ways of avoiding mass data collection, hitherto an inherent part of the process. The study also provided the opportunity to introduce subjective data into a field previously guarded by opinion and precedent. The underlying approach was to establish a total data system in which fieldwork methods were not regarded in isolation, but rather as an integral part of the overall process. (A). /TRRL/
