Abstract

To have a deeper understanding of the characteristics of consumer behaviors in time series as well as in individual stores and support commercial space planning under the fast development of city shopping centers in China, this paper expands time related information in the data collected from the consumer survey in Wangfu ling Street, using the "Pedestrian Grid" method. The temporal distributions of consumers' activities and walking behaviors, their spatio-temporal distributions in 12 time slots during 9:00-12:00, and temporal distributions of consumer behaviors in major activity places are described. Major findings include the single-peaked temporal distribution of consumer activities and walking behaviors, the pendulum-swinging distribution and the faultage-like distribution of pedestrian flows at some locations. Suggestions are given for the spatial planning of Wangfu Jing Street.
