Toward a More Efficient Network Structure for Travel Demand Modeling

The purpose of this research is to examine the issues related to the network structure of travel demand models, and, in particular, of the statewide model, in order to identify a more efficient multi-resolution network structure and a consistent process that will enable effective information sharing with the District's models or local models, and that will optimize model execution, while preserving the detailed attribution provided by the finer network segmentation. This will allow modelers to access information from other models at different geographic scopes and be much more efficient and productive when executing travel demand models, without the barriers of the different network data structures, and while maintaining their model independence. This research will develop a framework to research these goals and explore and test its feasibility for implementation.
