The Ph.D. project concerns the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for traffic planning with a special emphasis on Impact Analysis and Accessibility. The project concerns to major areas: (1) Analyses on how to conduct GIS-based impact analysis in traffic planning. This part of the project will consist of theoretical and empirical analyses of the improvements on existing impact models that the use of GIS can provide. Noise and emission models will be in focus. (2) A quantification of the concept of accessibility. Functional models have to be identified and formulated in order for accessibility to be integrated as a part of the traffic planning process. The research is currently covering the accessibility for passengers in a transport network. The project will end with a number of analyses of the use of the impact model in a Multi-Modal Traffic planning Process (MM-TP).
