TRAFFIC SURVEYS WITH THE AID OF MARKED MAPS AS A MEANS OF DATA ACQUISITION

VERKEHRSERHEBUNGEN MIT MARKIERUNGSKARTEN ALS DATENTRAEGER

THE MOST IMPORTANT BASIS FOR TRAFFIC ANALYSES AND FORECASTS IS A SUFFICIENTLY LARGE BODY OF DATA ON THE VOLUME AND DIRECTIONS OF TRAFFIC STREAMS. UP TO THE PRESENT, DATA OF THIS TYPE RELATING TO PASSENGER VEHICLE TRAFFIC HAVE GENERALLY BEEN LACKING IN GERMANY, DUE MAINLY TO THE HIGH COST OF GATHERING AND EVALUATING THE INFORMATION. MARKED MAPS IN THE FORM OF PUNCHED CARDS WHICH ARE MACHINE-READABLE BY ELECTRONIC DATA-PROCESSING EQUIPMENT MAY BE USED AS PRIMARY DOCUMENTS FOR SEVERAL TYPES OF SURVEY. THE METHOD HERE DESCRIBED CAN, FOR EXAMPLE, BE USED TO PREPARE AN ORIGIN-DESTINATION MATRIX FOR THE GERMAN FEDERAL RAILWAY SYSTEM FOR AN ACCEPTABLE OUTLAY OF TIME AND MONEY.
