Abstract: This paper describes the MULATM microcomputer traffic planning model, as an example of the possible uses for microcomputers in transportation planning. These uses include interactive input/output, medium-resolution color graphics displays, and differences in program design between mainframe and micro-systems. MULATM is a desk-top design tool for the engineer or planner, who may be expected to have technical expertise in transportation but not necessarily in computing. The package has inbuilt intelligence, and can edit input data and assist the user to define the road network and traffic system under investigation.
