This chapter discusses theories and methods for analyzing the interrelationship of human activities in space and time, focusing on time geography; and elegant and powerful framework. The relevance of time geography for analyzing real world transportation and communication systems has improved tremendously in recent years with the rise of geographic information technologies such as geographic information systems (GIS) and the global positioning system (GPS). At the same time, information technologies such the Internet and mobile telephone have drastically altered the relationships between geo-space and time in the real world, creating fascinating and imperative research challenges. The “new time geography” has great potential for guiding land use and transportation systems toward more livable and sustainable outcomes.
