An Overview of European National Models

  • Hugh Gunn
Part of the Advances in Spatial Science book series (ADVSPATIAL)


The aim of this chapter is to provide something of a historical perspective from which to view recent advances in National Travel Demand Models, as an introduction to the discussion in other chapters of this book.
