University of Glasgow’s unique Integrated Multimedia City Data (iMCD) Survey is a cross-sectional survey based on a sample of the general population in private residences across eight local authority areas of Glasgow and Clyde Valley. The purpose of the iMCD dataset was to provide a 360° overview of a life in the city, combining various datasets and methods of collection.
The survey fieldwork was run by Ipsos MORI and took place between 15th April 2015 and 21st November 2015. This project was funded by ESRC and it was a result of collaboration across the University of Glasgow, Newcastle and Sheffield. The intention was to provide new innovative datasets with new methods and methodologies that could be used by the policy makers.
iMCD consists of 5 main strands (Survey, GPS, life-logging devices, image analysis, textual media and multimedia data). The core of the iMCD is the Household Survey. Each of the five data strands are built on unique models of data sampling. As a part of the project, we also collected for example a sample of GPS and lifelogging sensors. Lifelogging sensors collected data through GPS devices and wearable cameras.
iMCD: Travel Diary is part of the iMCD project. A subset of participants (1506) also agreed to complete a travel diary, which described their movements and purpose of the day prior the survey’s collection. For widespread sharing, this data is aggregated to local authority level, consistent with the Scottish Household Survey methodology (for more info see:
http://www.gov.scot/Topics/Statistics/16002/Methodology ). Travel diary offers insight into questions such as how far does the respondents children has to ravel to school, in which local authority does the participant’s child go to school, or how do they travel during term time .
The iMCD: Travel Diary is ready for sharing after signing Access Agreement and EULA. This dataset can be used internationally for Academic and Commercial Research.
