David Simmonds Consultancy Limited


A new version of the LASER (London and the South-East Region) land-use/transport interaction model has been developmed for the UK Department for Transport and ODPM, with the main objective of improving the representation of housing markets and household location behaviour in the LASER model, but also to increase the number of teams able to use the necessarily complex LASER model and to provide an approach which can serve as a prototype for other future land-use/transport modelling work. The existing LASER model was built in the MEPLAN software package provided by WSP. The new model involved replacing the land-use modelling elements of LASER with a new implementation of DSC's DELTA software.
