Hi, I am a new user, can anyone please show me the steps to add "new trips" that my development is adding into the network?Additionally, once the model run is over, where can I see the map with roadways showing the trips? I will appreciate your help.
Please download our tutorial model (Cubetown) and its associated data from this link: http://www.citilabs.com/support/learning-center/.
The Voyager Demonstration Model is a good start for new users. Typically, you would have a parent scenario where it has the data for that year, e.g. 2010. If you are to create an analysis for alternatives, it is best to create a child scenario. Below is a figure of the parent scenario of Cubetown and its child scenarios (Build Road, Increase Transit, and Land Use). To make a child scenario, you have to right-click the parent scenario and select Add Child Scenario. Once done, add a code or description in the succeeding window if you would like and click OK.
The model should update with the new child scenario and the scenario manager screen should pop up for that scenario. Here, make sure to update all relevant catalog keys and directory that is related to this scenario. Below is a figure for the related keys to the Build Road Child Scenario of Cubetown.
And below are related keys to the Base Parent Scenario. Noticed that not all keys are the same.
Feel free to explore this feature more. The Cubetown Voyager Demonstation Model has a step where it compares the two road networks of the two scenarios (Base and selected child scenario) that had successful runs. This is located in GDB Output (Step 7) > NETWORK Program (Step 5).
If you double-click on the output file (green box) of the NETWORK program (Step 5), then click on HOME tab > Highway Layer Link Specification > and give the following codes below, then you should be able to see the differences for absolute load change between the two scenarios.
Below I have selected to Post Link using the ABSLOADCHG attribute.
This is the result.
This is just to give you an idea of how to approach things. It is advisable that you explore more into the tutorial.
