CREATION OF URBAN TRANSPORTATION NETWORK MODELS FROM DIME FILES

The development of a set of computer programs that use U.S. Bureau of the Census geographic data to create urban transportation network models is reported. The process uses the Dual Independent Map Encoding (DIME) files created by the U.S. Bureau of the Census for each of the major standard metropolitan statistical areas of the United States. Manual coding of networks is reduced to a minimum, and highly detailed network models can be created. Functioning and use of the program are documented, and the way in which computer graphic displays are readily generated from DIME file data is demonstrated. Examples of computer graphic output from the program are presented. /Author/
