Abstract

Movement flows in the city are determined mainly by the to-movement and through-movement potentials of the street network (network effects) or to the way people perceive distance (distance effects). The aim of this paper is to clarify the respective dominance of each of these types of effects on aggregative movement patterns. The investigation entailed analysis of movement flows obtained through agent-based simulations. The study results show that the use of the through-movement potential depends mainly on the distance effects whereas the to-movement potential depends largely on the network effect. Consideration of land use patterns reduce the distance effects.
