The District One Regional Planning Model version 1.0.6 (12.31.18) is a Florida Standard Urban Transportation Structure (FSUTMS), four-step, trip-based model. Developed with CUBE/Voyager v6.1.1 transportation planning software. The model, with 5,095 traffic analysis zones (TAZ) covers 12,400 square miles in 12 counties: Charlotte, Collier, Desoto, Glades, Hardee, Hendry, Highlands, Lee, Manatee, Okeechobee, Polk, and Sarasota.
The D1RPM consists of a base year of 2010, existing plus committed year of 2018, and forecast year of 2040. The sources of input data used in the model include:
The D1RPM includes an airport sub-model for the thee commercial airports in D1 (RSW, SRQ, PGD) and the model utilizes heavy truck sub-model which utilizes volumes obtained from the Florida Statewide model. Model volumes are in AADT.
This model can be used for site traffic studies, corridor studies, and long-range plans. To run the model, it is recommended to use CUBE/Voyager 6.4.5 with CLUSTER processing, and have 15GB of disk space for output and temporary work files. The base GIS projection is Albers Equal Area (In ArcMap: NAD 1983 HARN Florida GDL Albers).
