About the research

Abstract: The goal of this project was to develop user-friendly windows programs capable of combining urban planning models and desktop GIS packages. Previous efforts in this area, sponsored by the Iowa DOT, examined integrating a popular travel demand forecasting software with one GIS package. This work, sponsored by the FHWA, looks to extend that work to include additional GIS packages and incorporate user testing of the system developed
