EVALUATION OF INTERVENING OPPORTUNITIES TRIP DISTRIBUTION MODEL

METHODS ARE PRESENTED FOR CALIBRATING AND TESTING THE ABILITY OF THE INTERVENING OPPORTUNITIES MODEL TO SIMULATE PRESENT TRAVEL PATTERNS TO FORECAST TRAVEL PATTERNS FOR ANOTHER POINT IN TIME. BOTH THE CALIBRATING AND FORECAST TESTING PHASE OF THE RESEARCH, SUPPLEMENTED WITH NECESSARY BACKGROUND INFORMATION RELATING TO EACH PHASE, AS WELL AS THE DETAILED PROCEDURES UTILIZED AND RESULTS OBTAINED /WHEN COMPARED WITH COMPREHENSIVE HOME INTERVIEW DATA/ ARE REPORTED. THE BASIC SOURCE OF DATA USED IN THE CALIBRATION AND SIMULATION PHASE WAS THE 1948 WASHINGTON AREA HOME INTERVIEW O-D SURVEY. THE CALIBRATED MODEL WAS THEN APPLIED TO 1955 CONDITIONS AND RESULTING TRIP DISTRIBUTION PATTERNS WERE CHECKED AGAINST THE 1955 WASHINGTON AREA HOME INTERVIEW SURVEY DATA TO TEST THE FORECASTING ABILITY OF THE MODEL. IMPROVED PROCEDURES AND TECHNIQUES FOR CALIBRATING AND TESTING THE INTERVENING OPPORTUNITIES TRIP DISTRIBUTION MODEL ARE SUGGESTED. /AUTHOR/
