More and more people are using public transport. The Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) are expanding their railway stations and redesigning them so that all passengers will in future still reach their destinations safely and quickly. In this context, the depiction, planning and simulation of people flows (customer flows, movement patterns) are of increasing importance. This project will open up new access points in this field. Starting with seven topical clusters, different aspects of people flows will be analysed and depicted anew, based on a comprehensive collection of images. The prototypes for new visualisations developed from this have been validated using a Delphi survey of expert opinions and tested for their future potential. The SBB have been presented with a catalogue of recommendations with all the visualisation models, and a practice manual will be developed during the last phase of the project.
