This workshop presented an introductory, nontechnical primer on types of land use models and current capabilities of the state of the best practice. It included presentations of a number of case studies of operational models. Issues addressed within the workshop included typical development and operating costs, data requirements, and model capabilities for policy analysis. Specific examples of model applications and their impacts on decision making were presented. The primary audience was metropolitan planning organizations and state department of transportation and federal planners and modelers interested in learning about current capabilities of integrated models. The workshop was also of interest to consultants and academics interested in learning more about such models. The focus of the workshop was on the dissemination of information concerning operational models, current best practices in integrated modeling, why integrated models are useful in practical planning applications, and how to go about developing an integrated modeling capability at the local or state level.
