This manual documents the MAGTOP Computer System originally developed for the New York Department of Transportation and converted (by Comsis Corporation) into ANSI FORTRAN for the Federal Highway Administration. This volume provides sample input/output runs for each of the modules contained in the MAGTOP system. Separate volume MAGTOP User's Manual - Program Documentation provides program documentation for each module. The Management of Traffic Operations (MAGTOP) computer system has been designed to assist the traffic engineer in developing traffic operations improvements as part of the Transportation Systems Management element of the Urban Transportation Plan. The system provides a convenient method for storing the large amounts of traffic operations data and provides the integrated facilities to easily summarize, analyze, and display this data. Modules are included to calculate capacities, signal offset analysis, statistical analysis and collision diagram analysis. Other modules provide reports on volume counts, speed/delay, accidents, volume/capacity, signal timing, and physical characteristics. Plot modules plot histograms, two variables, network bandwidth, and time space diagrams. /FHWA/
