Abstract

Empirical data provide the bridge between reality and understanding. Human egress data-sets are scarce. The data currently available are relatively narrow in scope. The data are derived from a range of sources and locations, not all appropriate. Much of the egress data are several decades old. These issues lead to weaknesses in our understanding of real-world phenomena and also in our attempts to model these phenomena. Data are often difficult to find, difficult to understand, and difficult to apply. This paper describes an attempt to standardize the description and storage of human egress data. This work has been conducted as part of a NIST-funded project and, as a result, a central repository of data will be created that provides tools to facilitate the storage, representation and access to the data needed for researchers and engineers alike.
