TN18 WTSM Calibration and ValidationSearch in document library
Opus International Consultants Limited (Opus) and Arup Australia (Arup) were commissioned by Greater Wellington Regional Council (GWRC) to rebase the existing 2006 Wellington Transport Strategy Model (WTSM) to a new base year of 2011. Opus updated the WTSM while Arup developed a Wellington Public Transport Model (WPTM) based on networks from WTSM and detailed public transport surveys. The whole process of model updates and development is complex and involves several steps which have each been individually reported in a series of technical notes. This technical note describes the calibration and validation procedures carried out on the 2011 WTSM model update.
