A "GENERALIZED DISTANCE" ESTIMATION PROCEDURE FOR INTRA-URBAN INTERACTION (RESEARCH NOTES AND COMMENTS)

A large scale modeling effort is underway for the purpose of developing land use and environmental guidelines in the Texas Coastal Zone. The land use portion of this project requires the spatial allocation of commercial, retail and residential elements of the Corpus Christi region under a series of policy constraints. As an input to this analysis it has been important to determine the character of spatial interaction for a series of activities not the least of which was the intra-urban traffic patern. A set of experiments have been conducted on various interaction estimation procedures and the results of noe of these experiments is reported below. The importance of this experiment lies in the demonstrated applicability of an extremal method of statistical estimation based on the statistical information-theoretic approach. The demonstration rests on a new mathematical device, hearin introduced for the first time. This device incorporates out desire for integer-valued estimates of the traffic flow, and in fact guarantees integer solutions. /GMRL/
