Spatially explicit modeling of parking search as a tool for urban parking facilities and policy assessment
TLDR
A high-resolution spatially explicit agent-based model termed “PARKAGENT” is used for evaluation of parking demand in the Diamond Exchange area in Ramat Gan, for estimating the effectiveness of planned parking facilities for different development scenarios in the area and assessing electronic signage system that directs drivers to vacant parking lots.
