Successful TRANSIMS Training Course at TRACCSo far, TRACC held three full training courses on the open source TRANSIMS software in 2008, and is preparing to hold the course for a fourth time from November 20th to 24th at the DuPage Airport Flight Center where TRACC’s offices are located. A fifth training course is being planned for December or early January in California at a location that is still to be determined. Details will be posted on the TRANSIMS web site and forum as soon as dates and location are decided upon.
TRANSIMS is increasingly used by traffic analysts across the United States for a variety of traffic forecasting and analysis projects. The TRANSIMS community has grown dramatically over the past year, with a user community of about 230 people at this time. Due to the extensive experience with the TRANSIMS application at TRACC as well as an internal need to train additional personnel and subcontractors in the use of this software application, TRACC decided to invite a number of participants from other organizations to these courses. To reach out into the TRANSIMS community, the training courses are now broadly announced on the TRANSIMS web site operated by the US Department of Transportation.
