Florida Statewide Model Workshop - June 15-16, 2015

The Florida Department of Transportation will be holding a two-day training course designed for Florida Standard Urban Transportation Model Structure (FSUTMS) users who want training with FDOT's Florida Statewide Model (FLSWM). Participants will gain an understanding of each of the model components, how the model forecasts travel demand for passenger cars and freight, and how to setup and run the FLSWM. Also, a preview of upcoming FLSWM enhancements occurring in Phase 2 of the FLSWM update will be presented (Navteq migration, parcel data incorporation, etc.). Previous travel demand model experience is recommended.

Location and Dates:

Jacksonville - District 2 Urban Office Training Building
Monday June 15, 2015 - Tuesday June 16, 2015

FSUTMS Cube Avenue (DTA) Workshop - June 10-11, 2015

The Florida Department of Transportation will be holding a two day course teaching how to use Cube Avenue to dynamically simulate traffic flow in a corridor or region. Cube Avenue is a dynamic traffic assignment extension for Cube Voyager. It models traffic at greater levels of detail than macroscopic models, like Cube Voyager’s Highway program, and at lesser levels of detail than microscopic models, like Cube Dynasim. Participants are recommended to have attended the FSUTMS Comprehensive Modeling Workshop or have extensive modeling experience.

Location and Dates:

Orlando - Turnpike Office, Auditorium B
Wednesday June 10, 2015 - Thursday June 11, 2015
