Micro-simulation modelling is widely recognised as a valuable tool for assessing the impacts of land use changes, transportation schemes and new infrastructure proposals. More than simply ‘pretty pictures’ micro-simulation modelling uses new technology to simulate road networks and road user behaviour, allowing planners and engineers to test ideas and support innovative thinking with graphically displayed results. Popular amongst local authorities for its ability to show impacts in ‘layman’ terms, micro-simulation can assist with decision making, cost management and the communication of ideas. However, all modelling techniques have their limitations and this course provides those new to modelling, project managers and clients with a fit-for-purpose understanding of techniques, software and interpretation of results.
