Travel Model Improvement Program – Freight Model Improvement Program Community of Practice Support
The project aims to support the Travel Model Improvement Program (TMIP) - Freight Model Improvement Program (FMIP) online community of practice (COP) (TMIP-FMIP|COP) site (TMIP.org).
TMIP was created to advance the state of the practice of travel modeling by advancing research and building the technical capabilities of agencies’ staff. The success of TMIP is built upon the fundamental principle that sharing information benefits everyone in the transportation modeling community.
Over the past years, TMIP has increased its efforts to facilitate knowledge sharing by taking advantage of latest technology, which makes it easier for TMIP COP members to share information. The electronic lists that TMIP maintains are very popular with travel modelers.
- Planning, Environment, and Realty
- Analysis, Modeling, and Simulation
This project will provide a platform for transportation modeling and analysis information exchange. The primary discussion list, TMIP-L, now has over 2,300 subscribers, including international travel modeling professionals.
This project will promote modeling best practices and enhance information exchanges among planning analysts and modelers from states, MPOs, private entities and non-profit entities. It enables TMIP to fulfil its mission of improving analysis practices to ensure that transportation professionals are well equipped to inform and support strategic transportation decisions.
