Development of a High-resolution Statewide Socio-demographic, Land Use and Economic Development Framework for Transportation Planning

The research is geared towards developing a standardized high resolution state-wide socio-demographic, land use and economic development model that will provide stakeholders with a framework analogous to the FSUTMS model. The research team, in consultation with the project manager and FDOT statewide Planning office personnel, will generate a universal template of variables that will be useful for the statewide framework. For the universal template built, the research team will generate socio-economic, land use and economic development variables for a spatial resolution that can be directly employed for local jurisdictions and statewide models. With this overall vision, the specific objectives of the project are as follows: (1) Establish a universal template of socio-demographic, land use and economic indicators useful for the statewide framework for an appropriate spatial resolution to interact with existing transportation planning frameworks. (2) Develop and validate an algorithm to generate socio-demographic, land use and economic indicators employed in transportation planning and economic development analysis using public data sources for a pre-determined base year. (3) Employ the validated algorithm developed to generate future socio-demographic, land use and economic indicators in 5-year increments from 2025 through 2050.
