TIME-SPACE DIARIES: MERGING TRADITIONS. IN: TRANSPORT SURVEY QUALITY AND INNOVATION

Traditional travel diaries are organized around trips, when travelers use an instrument that asks them to record all trips in order in which they are undertaken, with some contextual information on each trip. Time diaries, on the other hand, capture trips in the context of daily activities. This chapter's aim is to identify basic instruments used by each approach. It examines data captured by time diary studies in light of the value added by time-space diaries. It argues for the use of time-space approach because it offers: study of key destinations; calculation of distance, speed and direction of travel; study of substitution of activities among geographic locations' identification of the diurnal cycle of space; and identification of the spatial dimension of activity.
