UTILIZING GEOGRAPHIC BASEFILES FOR TRANSPORTATION ANALYSES: A NETWORK BASEFILE SYSTEM

The existence of geographic base files (GBF) for most large urban areas offers a significant resource for the network models required for many transportation studies. The thrust of the Network Basefile System (NETBASIS) development, underway at the University of Washington since 1974, is to build upon the existing GBF data resource (which has been operational for the city of Seattle for many years) and to provide a general purpose transportation network data base together with the required data manipulation and display software. The purpose of this paper is to present a status report on the NETBASIS development as of June 1977.
