About the research

Abstract: The objective of this software is to provide a convenient method for transferring travel models and their data between ArcView and TRANPLAN. Once this task is completed, the interface will allow the use of a variety of planning and analysis tools on the completed model. By automating formerly labor-intensive steps, the interface reduces users? computer time, improves file management, and assists in visualization of the traffic network data. A key addition to the ArcView-TRANPLAN interface is the help-sensitive tool tips added to non-ArcView input windows. Through the use of Visual Basic programming, users are given reference locations either in the TRANPLAN User?s Manual or in this manual for information regarding required input.
