Guidance for modelling and data collection


The aim of the guidance is to collect and provide information on major state-of-the-art modelling approaches and assessment tools as well as the required data and possible data sources. 

This document introduces nowadays’ transport modelling concepts and compares existing software solutions available for this purpose. Not only major commercial applications are presented, but available mature open source solutions as well. In addition, the document describes the data needed for building a model for a given city or region, shows where such data can be retrieved from, and how missing data can be generated. In addition, use cases are given, which help in choosing the right model or model class.
