As part of the JATES project in Edinburgh, DSC developed a system of 'land-use change indicators' designed to provide limited information on the land-use impacts of alternative strategies within the constraints of a conventional transport study approach - in particular, by applying a static model in a 'horizon year', rather than requiring a series of years to be modelled. The initial application was linked to the START model implemented by MVA within the JATES project. Subsequently, the DSCMOD system has been applied to
