TIGRIS. UNDERSTANDING THE INTERACTION BETWEEN TRANSPORT AND LAND USE THROUGH DECENTRALISATION

This paper describes the background and present status of TIGRIS, a model of the interaction between transport and land use (LTI model), that was developed as part of the STRUWIN project in the Netherlands. The geographical basis of the LTI model is the zones, in which the Netherlands can be subdivided, and transport networks between the zones. The model's submodels are: (1) the incremental model to judge changes in successive years; (2) the allocation model concerned with the characteristics of different zones; (3) the model of the interaction between transport and town and country planning; (4) the interactive model, where specific policy measures can be tested during simulation runs; and (5) the multi-level model that includes the whole of the Netherlands. Because the intended LTI model is so complex, TIGRIS is being developed by a cyclical process. The interaction between TIGRIS and the user occurs in several steps, and the model uses an incremental approach. TIGRIS at present has a geographical basis and basic data for all the Netherlands.
