A number of indices to describe and compare sets of pedestrian routes in shopping environments will be introduced. The first set of indices is related to characteristics of the trajectories and the second set to visiting outlets. These statistics can be used to assess the performance of models predicting individual routes in shopping areas. Another application may be to compare pedestrian behaviour in different shopping environments. The latter will be done in this study. Routes observed in the downtown shopping area of Eindhoven will be compared with observed routes in the Maastricht downtown shopping area.
