The Oregon Statewide Model integrates the dynamic interaction between Oregon’s economy, land use, and transportation systems into one unified modeling tool. To address the complexity and challenges associated with the dynamic interaction, the Statewide Model is made up of eight sub-models:
- 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, and
- Transport Model: allocates trips to routes.
Statewide Integrated Model
Development of the Oregon Statewide Integrated Model was conducted through the Transportation Land Use Modeling Improvement Project established under the broader Oregon Modeling Improvement Program begun in 1994.
2nd Generation Statewide Model
Developed interim economic, land use and transportation model(s) for statewide application.
1st Generation Statewide Model
Research and develop prototype statewide and sub-state model applications.
