Objectives

By providing projections on future travel patterns, The National Transport Model (NTM) is used to support policy decisions across the Department and beyond.

Description

This project will develop the National Transport Model's Analysis Server computer system. The existing system needs to be upgraded to handle larger and more complex outputs from the new modelling system (National Transport Model version4 (NTMv4)). Model improvements have resulted in much larger files, some over 1GB in size. An updated analysis server will allow model analysts to analyse the many and varying large data files by comparing results between many scenarios. The new system will not only be able to manipuilate new NTMv4 output files but also those from previous versions of the model. (NTM versions 2 and 3)
The update of the existing system also presents the opportunity to place the system, which at present is still in its original prototype form, on a more sustainable footing.
