EVOLUTION OF STATEWIDE MODELING IN FLORIDA: THE TEAMWORK APPROACH

The key to the success of the Florida Statewide Model's evolution has been the recognition that most trips within the state are under local influence. That is, only a small percentage of the person and freight trips exceed 50 mi (80 km) and even a smaller percentage venture past 200 mi (322 km). While many of the gravity modeling methodologies are often criticized when used with statewide models, these same methodologies have actually been the backbone of the Florida Statewide Model evolution. Early recognition of the importance of local transportation infrastructure on statewide transportation systems allowed Florida to disaggregate the statewide modeling process to include the broad array of urban, county, regional and special application models that constitute the Florida Statewide Modeling System.
