Abstract

This study explores the spatial distribution characteristics of travel activities and their relationship with land use, using data from the resident travel survey in 2015 of Xiaoshan District of Hangzhou City, China. A new classification method is proposed to classify travel activities into three groups: single-activity travel, multi-activity intermittent travel, and multi-activity continuous travel. The main findings are: (a) the length of activity chain and proportion of multi-activity travels are increasing with the distance between residence and activity center; (b) the non-home destinations of single-activity travel, multi-activity intermittent travel and multi-activity continuous travel agglomerate towards the activity center, and the degree of agglomeration is increasing in this order; (c) the distribution density of point of interest (POI) and activity destinations have strong positive correlations in spaces; (d) some attributes of POIs and demographics have significant influences on multi-activity continuous travels. These findings are useful in inducing activities through reasonable combinations and spatial interconnections of POIs in urban planning.
