Results are reported of a study conducted to develop a land use-transportation analysis system that will be useful for assessing impacts of transportation improvements. The study consists of two major parts. The purpose of the first part is to develop models that adequately describe the locational behavior of land uses and consequently forecast future land use patterns. The purpose of the second part is to develop a computer-aided analysis system that makes it possible to manage vast amounts of spatial data and to create an easy-to-use system to manage a complex array of integrated programs by man-machine interactive methods. The land use-transportation model has a hierarchic structure that first allocates land use demand into city-sized zones and then into 1-km2 grids. The allocation model for the zone level has a Lowry-type structure, but each submodel for industrial, business, and residential use is based on its own locational behavior. The allocation model for the grid level describes competition among land uses under constraints of zoning regulations according to the principle of maximization of locational surplus. Transportation conditions are determined by estimating trips generated from new locations. The location of land uses and transportation conditions interact in the model. The computer-aided system contains a data base system for data processing of land use-transportation analysis as well as an interactive operation system that uses computer graphics and a hierarchic menu for program execution. To illustrate this system, future changes of land use and transportation in the Tokyo metropolitan area due to the proposed Tokyo Bay Bridge are forecast.
