Due to a sudden spike in electric vehicle (EV) utilization on university campuses, the objective of this project is to determine where to place EV charging stations in the most optimal locations and to support a mobile application that will be used as a guide to help commuters. Using research on walkability has led to the use of cognitive mapping. Using the cognitive map of the University of West Florida’s campus in a survey will help show what building and what parking lot are the most frequented on the campus. Students and faculty will be asked to show how they travel to and from the building to their preferred parking lot. Using the data from the surveys helps indicate where the campus population is parking in relation to the buildings they frequent. ArcGIS is used to digitize the surveys and show the frequency of parking lots to buildings. This project is a part of a larger team effort to inform a mobile application where EV charging stations are located on campus. The purpose of this project is to help place these charging stations in the most efficient way possible on campus.
