UBC has nearly 80,000 students, faculty, staff, and residents. It has been chosen due to its very […]
Urban Data Lab (UDL), through the use of UBC and open-sourced spatial and nonspatial transportation data, is developing multimodal transportation modelling capacity on campus. The transportation modelling system selected by the project team is PTV VISSIM to develop and examine what-if scenarios of UBC’s multi-modal transportation systems. The transportation modelling will not only consider the […]
