VUGIS: Transport Planning and GIS (2000- 2002)

The thematic field 'Mobility and Transport of Tomorrow' of the 'Innovation Programme Research' of the State of North-Rhine Westphalia is to contribute to making mobility more efficient and improving traffic flows. The project 'Integration of Transport Planning and Geographic Information Systems' (VUGIS) aims at the development of a GIS-based decision support system for transport planning. The potential of GIS for the integration of heterogeneous data from existing data sources or generated in the planning process has hardly been utilised in transport planning. Starting from an analysis of planning processes, actors and data needs of current transport planning, the requirements for a GIS-based model system for transport planning will be defined in the project. Based on these requirements, a prototype for two typical applications will be developed. The prototype will consist of three components: a spatial database, a combined transport-and-environment model and a user interface. The three-year research project is a co-operation of IRPUD with the Chair of Transport Systems and Transport Planning of the Department of Spatial Planning and the Institutes of Geoinformatics (IfGI) und Geography (IfG) of the University of Münster. Project co-ordinator is Werner Kuhn (IfGI).
