Title: Improvements to walking speed predictions through GPS data analysis



Previous work has explored using GPS data to model walking speeds for hiking and hillwalking. Here, we will validate that work using a dataset of  ~100,000 km of GPS data. We will then look to extend the model to include differences between off-path and on-path travel, and discuss the importance of this in a route-planning environment. Following this, we will investigate methods which can be used to further classify off-path terrain-type, and explore the effects of doing so. Finally, we will look at the ways in which all of these factors can be brought together in order to generate a comprehensive formula for determining hiking speeds.
