Fürstenfeldbruck is one of our main development partners and was involved in the GOAT1.0 development process. GOAT was used by the local planners to calculate the effects of new path connections and to check suitable locations for new supermarkets.

Freising is also one of our main development partners and was involved in the co-creative development process of GOAT version 1.0. GOAT was used by local planners to evaluate the connectivity of new residential areas. In addition, the local supply in rural areas was examined and suitable locations for new facilities were identified.

San Pedro Garza García

As part of a pilot study, GOAT was applied to San Pedro Garza García in Mexico. Innovative data fusion strategies were developed that allow GOAT to be used even in regions with low OSM data availability. GOAT was used for accessibility analyses to kindergartens, schools and other public facilities and contributed to the municipal pedestrian master plan.

In order to analyse social justice in Bogotá, GOAT was transferred to the first Latin American city and supplemented with socio-demographic data. Furthermore, various points-of-interest (such as cable car stations and police stations) were added to GOAT in order to adapt the tool to the local context. This study was part of a master's thesis at TUM.

As part of a master's thesis at TUM, GOAT was transferred to the Munich district and detailed analysis options for walkability were added, such as information on street quality (pavement width, surface condition, accessibility, etc.) and various temporal information (opening hours, lighting).

As part of a study project at TUM, GOAT was transferred to Matosinhos in Portugal. This was the first attempt to use GOAT outside Germany. With the help of local stakeholders, the relevant points-of-interest were identified and mapped. Various crowdsourcing measures were tested for this purpose.
