DETERMINATION OF O-D ZONES BY MEANS OF LAND-USE DATA

LAND USE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT SINGLE FACTOR IN ESTABLISHING ZONES FOR ORIGIN AND DESTINATION SURVEYS. SINCE THE ANALYSIS AND INTERPRETATION OF ORIGIN-DESTINATION ZONE DATA INCLUDES SPATIAL CONSIDERATIONS, THE PHYSICAL LOCATION OF THE CENTER OF TRAFFIC GENERATION IN ANY GIVEN ZONE MUST BE KNOWN. THE LAND USES MUST BE KNOWN OF SIMILAR TRAFFIC- GENERATING CAPACITIES WITHIN A GIVEN ORIGIN-DESTINATION ZONE. FIRST STAGE OFFICE PLANNING SHOULD CONSIST OF THE COMPILATION OF PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SOURCE MATERIAL. FIELD WORK SHOULD BE UNDERTAKEN TO IMPLEMENT DATA GATHERED, TO CHECK THOSE DATA FOR VALIDITY AND COMPLETENESS, AND FILL-IN THE BLANK AREAS. SECOND STAGE OFFICE PLANNING WOULD CONSIST OF THE COMPILATION OF DATA GATHERED AND PRESENTED CARTOGRAPHICALLY.
