On Trajectories in Moscow Subway

Along with the continuous growth of megacities, their transportation systems have become increasingly large and complex. The use of transportation systems by passengers directly reflects the changes that occur in the urban environment - for this reason, the study of urban mobility is an important task of digital urbanism. In particular, this paper is devoted to the study of spatial patterns (repetitive routes) in transportation systems with the case study on the Moscow subway. A brief review of data mining approaches to transportation systems data in general and to the task of spatial patterns extraction, in particular, is presented. A simple method for pattern extraction is proposed and applied to the Moscow subway data. As a result of the deployment of the proposed method the list of patterns was obtained - the graph of spatial patterns of the transport system under study was constructed based on it.
