AASHTO needs your input for the elimination of tables in the CTPP. They have employed a methodology to suggest tables for elimination, however, a key feature of the methodology (google analytics for number of times a data table is accessed at any geography) does not take into account any users who have accessed the data by any means other than through the software. All "power users" who have downloaded data by FTP take note. Your use is not captured, and your input is necessary!
CTPP is hosting a series of "town hall" meetings to present findings and get your input and feedback.
Please consider attending one:

The Florida Department of Transportation will be holding six webinars designed for Florida Standard Urban Transportation Model Structure (FSUTMS) users who want to learn or review basic transportation modeling concepts, functions and skills. Previous travel demand model experience is recommended.
Times will be 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm for all webinars.

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.

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.

The Florida Department of Transportation has scheduled the Model Task Force Meetings for May 5-7 in Orlando, FL. In preparation for the meeting, the FDOT Central Office Modeling Section is requesting proposals for presentations from the Florida modeling community. The Florida Department of Transportation invites you to provide a short, 3-page maximum, proposal that outlines your innovative modeling approach, unique data application, cutting-edge innovations, or other topics that the modeling community would find interesting and useful. From these proposals, some will be selected to round out the Model Task Force meeting agenda.
Thank you for your active participation in helping enhance travel demand modeling knowledge in the state of Florida,
Please email your proposals to Gabrielle Matthews by Friday, April 10, 2015:
