GIS for gender-inclusive cities: spatio-temporal modelling of safety perceptions in public space
This research focusses on the field of gendered safety perception and how this can be understood across space and time. Whilst there has been an increased uptake of spatial technologies to capture gender inequity in cities, there is wide scope to improve the way this data in used. Previous research points to a lack of consistency in variables used to measure safety perception and the degree in which these variables influence safety perceptions across urban landscapes needs attention. This research aims to enhance understanding on how urban public space can be gendered based on the variables that contribute to a person’s safety perception, and how this phenomenon can be better understood, analysed, and modelled within a spatial and temporal context.
