• Short Description

    The tour-based model Visem is a disaggregated, behavior-oriented demand model which allows the planner to include all kinds of data relating to socio-demography and traffic policy issues. The tour-based model calculates three logical work unit: Trip generation, Trip distribution and Mode choice. These three logical units are not processed separately in succession by the tour-based model, but are interlocked. Especially steps 2 and 3, Trip distribution and Mode choice are carried out simultaneous in a single procedure. In all three work units two important concepts have been implemented for the tour-based model: Calculation on the basis of groups with homogeneous behavior and activity chains.
