Research Resilient Cartography: Using Interactive Online Mapping to Represent Corridor (Aero)mobilities - Phase 2

Most maps that influence our everyday mobility decisions privilege representations of space over those of time. Maps and Cartograms providing spatiotemporal information are used primarily to identify and track patterns of change in the past and predict future occurrences in the future. But they also have potential for use by transportation researchers and the traveling public. New approaches to corridor resilience require innovative cartographic approaches that call attention to the travel time takes. This project proposes to implement two such approaches to create two sets of maps for use by corridor airport users, transportation policy-makers and regional researchers. The purpose of the first set of maps is to reinforce and demonstrate the idea that travel-duration within urban areas throughout the corridor network is highly contingent on mode and location. The second set of maps demonstrates the change over time in the relationship of the corridor to domestic and international aeromobility networks. Based on these maps, the project will develop and report on cartographic methods for representing uneven (aero)mobilities and the relative position of corridor transportation nodes to one another as well as to those at the national and global scales. As the second phase of a University of Delaware-University Transportation Center (UD-UTC) project, the proposed project builds upon and extends the cartographic methods of Phase I to account for nested scales, more variable and historical-data interactivity, thereby providing a richer illustration of the rapidity and redundancy properties of regional resiliency.
