Real-time data collection at Mysteryland
Tim, a PhD candidate in the Transport & Planning department, visited the festival Mysterland together with his team to study the behaviour of the festivalgoers. Tim’s measuring instrument was an app he developed himself. He contacted the participants on the spot and via Facebook, and together they recorded which stages they visited, in what order and how long they stayed at each stage. He used the festivalgoers' GPS positions to analyse how they moved around the festival site and how this affected the only bridge that joined the northern part of the site to the southern part.
