Exploring Data Fusion Techniques to Derive Bicycle Volumes on a Network

Planners and decision makers have increasingly voiced a need for network-wide estimates of bicycling activity. Such volume estimates have for decades informed motorized planning and analysis but have only recently become feasible for non-motorized travel modes. To date, the bulk of our information on bicycling activity has come from national and regional household travel surveys or observed counts of cyclists -- either short-duration manual or longer-term automated counts -- in a limited set ...
