Hey all--research design question. A client wants a substantial field observation component to a downtown transportation study. Outside of detailed interviews, surveys, or ped/bike counts, are there other data collection methods that might be suitable and, if so, any reading recommendations on them? I'm looking at a few downtown plans by Gehl (naturally) and William H Whyte's street life project. I'm fairly new to this field and am not sure where to look for best practices. Thanks!
