Setting up a new case study
The Simtrap system provides an open framework of data and tools
that can easily be adapted to a new application in a new location.
Defining the scope
The first step involves defining the scope of the intended
AirWare application. The basic components include the GIS,
DYNEMO/DYMOS scenario editing, street network editor
and visualization/comparison of achieved model output.
They form the core of the Simtrap system.
Simtrap requires the following basic data sets:
background maps with administrative
satellite data or aerial photography and scanned maps
can be used together with vector maps;
digital elevation model (DEM) for complex terrain;
the system can import data from all
common GIS and IP systems;
Road Network Information
road network (geometry) graph for traffic emission/immission model;
the system can import data from traffic simulation systems like
EMME/2 or VISUM/DYNEMO.
a set of meteorological scenario files according to the Simtrap specifications.
