HIGHWAY PLANNING TECHNICAL REPORT TECHNIQUES FOR ANALYZING PROXIMITY TO HIGHWAY SYSTEMS

The procedures and computer program presented in this report provide a method for analyzing the proximity of various land activities to highway systems. Utilizing a coded highway network, this program allows the user to determine the minimum time or distance from every zone centroid to a specified highway system. Each centroid is then sorted by its associated impedance from lowest to highest. Additional data, such as population or economic data, may then be merged with its respective coordinate. Finally summary tables are printed out in a user specified format. The program has considerable flexibility in allowing the user to designate almost any type of system, or type of data he cares to specify. This report contains samples of possible applications of the program. Additionally, complete documentation of program operation and a sample card deck setup is provided.
