Urban Form, Energy and the Environment: A Review of Issues, Evidence and Policy
The spatial configuration of cities and its relationship to the urban environment has recently been the subject of empirical, theoretical and policy research. Because of the disciplines involved,
Transportation–land-use interaction: empirical findings in North America, and their implications for modeling
Abstract The last two decades have witnessed the implementation of various policies based on land-use to address problems stemming from automobile ownership and use. There are, however, questions
Current operational urban land‐use–transport modelling frameworks: A review
Various alternative frameworks are available for modelling urban land‐use–transport interaction. This paper provides a detailed review of six of these frameworks that have been or are currently being
ILUTE: An Operational Prototype of a Comprehensive Microsimulation Model of Urban Systems
This paper describes the development of an operational prototype for a comprehensive microsimulation model of urban systems. It examines several important design advances that emerged during the
Prototype Model of Household Activity-Travel Scheduling
The TASHA model is considered to be a successful first attempt to operationalize a generalized conceptual model of household decision making, with reasonable correspondence between model and observed trip rates and chain characteristics.
Exploring the propensity to perform social activities: a social network approach
Overall, explicitly incorporating social networks into the activity–travel behavior modeling framework provides a promising framework to understand social activities and key aspects of the underlying behavioral process.
Advances in population synthesis: fitting many attributes per agent and fitting to household and person margins simultaneously
A novel computational method is introduced that allows the synthesis of many more attributes and finer attribute categories than previous approaches, both of which are long-standing limitations discussed in the literature.
Microsimulating urban systems
The overall design and current status of the ILUTE (Integrated Land Use, Transportation, Environment) modelling system under development, intended to replace conventional, aggregate, static models for the analysis of a broad range of transportation, housing and other urban policies, is described.
The social dimension in action : A multilevel, personal networks model of social activity frequency between individuals
The results show that a proper and complete understanding of social activity generation requires going beyond the individualistic paradigm, explicitly incorporating the role of the social dimension in the study of this decision-making process.
