Since the release of version 8 of PTV Viswalk, it has been possible to assess the density in the immediate vicinity of individual pedestrians, and to display this data on the pedestrians themselves using colour coding. Even before this development it was also possible to visualise certain other static and dynamic values in this way, including:
- Pedestrian type
- Starting area
- Destination of the current route
- Distance to next (intermediate) destination
- Current speed
Both the current speed and the experienced density can be aggregated over time and displayed on the cells of a grid.
In this post we will discuss how to configure this functionality in PTV Viswalk 8 and explain the difference between ‘experienced density’ and ‘density’ when displayed on the grid cells.
