"Urban travel can no longer be understood simply as the spatial interaction between two fixed locations," says Mei-Po Kwan of The Ohio State University, author of the study. "It now involves more complex space-time coordination enabled by mobile communications." This trend can lead to changes in the importance and function of certain areas in a city.
Kwan suggests a new conceptualization of urban travel, using hypertext as a metaphor. "In a hypertext model, each individual has several nodes (as hypertext in a document) that connect to different social networks (e.g., to different groups of friends, colleagues, or relatives). Each link in these networks represents the possibility of interactive coordination between two individuals, who are also connected to many other individuals through various sets of real-time communication links," says Kwan.
