THE BASIC-NETWORK: A FLEXIBLE SYSTEM FOR THE CALCULATION OF TRAVEL TIMES AND DISTANCES

HET BASIS NETWERK: EEN FLEXIBEL SYSTEEM VOOR HET BEREKENEN VAN REISTIJDEN EN REISAFSTANDEN

The need for traffic and transport planners to have quickly available the values of explanatory factors influencing transport demand led, among other things, to the development of a so called basic network with corresponding software. The paper gives a systematic description of the infrastructure, analysed in all its essential components, for all modes of transport, such as walking, bicycle, moped, car, railway, bus etc. After dealing with the inventory of the infrastructure, the author focuses attention on the programs which produce a transport network model. Data checking is performed in order to guarantee an expeditious application. The output, such as travel time-matrices, distance-matrices and "round trips", is also discussed. Finally, brief attention is paid to the setting-up of a databank, to its use, and to the further development of the system and programs.
