The Mobility Compass is an innovative tool aimed at improving networking within mobility and transport research as well as the interdisciplinary exchange. The compass is based on openly available metadata on researchers and on their research output coming from various data sources and enables cross-database, subject-specific searches for cooperation and network partners in the fields of mobility and transport. Using the compass can be done via the following search options:
- Topics: The thematic visualization gives an overview of connections between research areas. To use this option, klick on the topic you would like to get information about. Researchers who have dealt with the topics will appear on the people list below.
- Locations: Find possible local cooperation partners and get an insight into the geographical distribution of certain research topics by searching through the location-based option.
- Searchbox: Here you can filter by various criteria, e.g. Topics, Locations, Names and Institutions.
All search options are interconnected and filter the number of relevant researchers in the results list.
