A system for practical pedestrian-track analysis at an actual exhibition is demonstrated. Track data obtained at the exhibition was uploaded to a spatio-temporal database, and the key features of the technical exhibition were determined. New knowledge derived from these features was successfully applied to improve the layout of the next event.
