Interest and Sharing - Update


Six month into writing this blog it hits the 2500 visitors mark. The last post on this was back in mid January where it hit the 1000 visitors mark and now it is more than double this number. This is very good news.
Again there were some very supportive links to the work on this bog and the work was quoted on a number of other blogs including digitalurban and GISagent, many thanks to them.
The graphs with the stats updates from sitemeter show a surprisingly similar picture. There is almost no change in the visitor’s pattern in terms of hour of the day looking at the total visits per hour. It is again this peak around three in the afternoon and a second one around ten in the evening. The later one could probably be America with the time difference ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ that they also visit around three in the afternoon local time.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

The last update on this was followed by an outlook for this project. One point was on collecting tracking data of a number of individuals and the other point was regarding an option to build up an online community to collect much more data to dandify the picture of urban cycles.
The tracking of participants has started as the UrbanDiary project and it is already one month that fourteen individuals collect data of their daily activities. This pre study is going well and the data is very good.
For the second point the UrbanDiary project has now a facebook page!
