Statewide Integrated Model

The Oregon Statewide Integrated Model (SWIM2) is an integrated land use transport model covering the entire State of Oregon. It is a second generation model, drawing on previous work done on the First Generation based Statewide Model (SWIM1) and the Eugene-Springfield UrbanSim Model. SWIM2

The SWIM2 model incorporates the interaction between Oregon’s economy, land use and transportation systems using a set of connected modules that cover different components of the full system.

  • Economic Model: determines the growth of the state’s economy.
  • Population Synthesizer.
  • Location Model: allocates business productions and transactions.
  • Aggregate Land Development – identifies land availability.
  • Person travel.
  • Commercial goods transport.
  • External goods transport.

Development of both the first and second generation models was commissioned by the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) as part of its Transportation and Land Use Model Improvement Program (TLUMIP) within the larger Oregon Modeling Improvement Program.
