Developing the survey tool

As we had never conducted a survey before we invited a few experts to our school to help us.

Dr. Kenneth Odero

Dr. Kenneth Odero

Dr. Kenneth Odero worked as an advisor for the City of Windhoek at the time.
It was pure coincidence that our mobility project coincided with the city’s initiative to develop a new Sustainable Urban Transport Master Plan for Windhoek. We therefore realized that we were not the only ones who had recognized the problem and Dr. Odero was more than happy to cooperate with us. From previous work with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP, www.unep.org) in Kenia he had lots of knowledge about fuel efficiency data of cars. Knowledge that turned out to be very useful when it came to evaluating our data at a later stage of the project.

Dr. Robert Riethmüller

Dr. Robert Riethmüller worked as a senior lecturer for the department of land management at the Polytechnic in Windhoek. He did not only help us with the questionnaire, but due to his work he also know a lot  about geo mapping. That means how to convert geographic data, like street addresses, into actual map data, so that it can be located on a map. This also turned out to be extremely helpful to us when it came to evaluating our survey data.
