Being mobile enables older adults to participate in meaningful activities, which in turn enhances their well-being. The theoretical foundation for many studies on mobility is formed by Hägerstrand’s time-geography. This offers a useful framework for studying revealed activity and travel patterns, shaped by various constraints in space and time. In its earlier years the theory was developed at the micro-level, while its applications were zone-based (e.g. life space measures). This changed in the 1990s, when micro-level activity and travel data became available, as well as GIS techniques to manage and analyze these types of datasets. From then onwards, research has focused on the refinement of spatio-temporal, geo-computational techniques to describe measured or potential spatial movement of individuals.
In this seminar we discuss the potential benefits of integrating GPS data with self-reported data to gain richer insights into the everyday mobility practices. With various examples we illustrate that our mixed-methods approach contributes to a better understanding of the everyday mobility practices.
