CHECKING THE NETWORK DESCRIPTION FOR ARTERIAL HIGHWAY AND TRANSIT NETWORKS

TRIPS DETERMINED FROM THE 1963 SEWRPC SURVEY DATA WILL FIRST BE ASSIGNED TO THE EXISTING NETWORKS AS A CHECK OF THE ACCURACY OF THE DATA. CALCULATED FUTURE TRIPS WILL BE LATER ASSIGNED TO PLANNED NETWORKS. TRAFFIC VOLUMES WILL BE ACCUMULATED BY ELECTRONIC COMPUTER ON THE NETWORK LINKS COMPRISING THE INTERZONAL MINIMUM TIME PATHS TO DETERMINE CAPACITY DEFICIENCIES AND VERIFY THE OVERALL FEASIBILITY OF THE PLANNED NETWORKS. BEFORE USING A NETWORK DESCRIPTION FOR TRAFFIC ASSIGNMENT BY COMPUTER, IT IS NECESSARY TO FIND AND ELIMINATE ANY ERRORS IN THE LINK DATA AND IN THE LINK CONNECTIONS AT NODES. THE ARTERIAL HIGHWAY NETWORK DESCRIPTION AND THE TRANSIT NETWORK DESCRIPTION, WHICH ARE ESSENTIAL TOOLS FOR TRAFFIC ASSIGNMENT, WERE EXTENSIVELY CHECKED TO SEE THAT THEY ACCURATELY REPRESENT THE CORRESPONDING REAL WORLD SYSTEMS. THIS WAS ACCOMPLISHED BY EDIT ROUTINES IN THE STANDARD BPR COMPUTER PROGRAMS WHICH WERE UTILIZED BY PLOTTING SELECTED MINIMUM PATH TREES AND EXAMINING THESE FOR VALIDITY.
