Activity Based Modeling

The Webinar focuses on the innovative features and implementation details of the Maricopa Association of Governments Activity-Based Model. Special attention is given to incorporation of travel time reliability metrics in the model and the model implementation details such as software development and hardware architecture, data requirements and approaches for results analysis and visualization. The presenters describe activity generation and tour formation, with an emphasis on supply side of the activities, sub-model for escorting children to school, improved models for work arrangements, and features designed for future integration with dynamic traffic assignments. Next steps in model development are discussed as well.
