TRAFFIC DEMAND ESTIMATION BASED ON ACTIVITY CHAINS USING VISEM-MODELING APPROACH AS PART OF TRANSPORTATION PLANNING

This paper introduces a software system called VISEM, which is used in transportation planning studies in the European community and is part of the commercial planning package PTV VISION (Visual Information System for Interactive Optimization of Networks). VISEM is a tool to estimate and forecast mode specific origin-destination matrices. It classifies the population into behaviorally homogeneous groups and generates trip chains derived from activity chains. This paper--which appears in a compendium of conference papers--provides an extensive description of the activity-based VISEM model, discusses calibration of the model, and uses the model to forecast and calculate traffic scenarios.
