Evaluation of Microcomputer Applications in Transportation Engineering
Virginia Highway & Transportation Research Council, 1984 - Microcomputers - 102 pages
This study investigated areas where microcomputers can aid in the effectiveness of transportation engineering at state and local levels. A survey of the microcomputer needs of transportation professionals in state and local agencies in Virginia was conducted. Overall, traffic engineers, public transit operators, and transportation planners indicated a strong interest in programs associated with their specialties and, in some cases, an interest in related areas. Sources of and information on software are described. Specific programs that address the needs cited in the responses to the survey of transportation. agencies are described. Programs were first sought through the DOT support centers and then comparable privately developed programs and additional applications were considered. The potential for in-house software is addressed. The study recommends that a microcomputer support organization be established at the state level to assist transportation professionals in securing software for engineering problems.
