Flight Definition

Hi!

Quick question about the passive data measures “average flight length” and “average flight duration”. Does a flight include all instances of participant movement (ie walking, biking, driving) and if so, is there anyway to parse apart flights of different modalities? It seems as if this was a GPS derived feature, but is there maybe a way to analyze in concert with accelerometer data to infer if participants are walking or in a car?

Thanks!

It is not possible to parse out their behavioral modalities (ie did they walk or bike). It is possible in the future as one could explore the rate of movement and figure out if on a car or by foot for example. But right now we don’t have the pipeline to support that - although it exists in other pipelines for GPS data for projects not done by our team.
