The derivation of Origin-Destination (O-D) trip matrices is a vital component of much transportation planning. Obtaining accurate O-D data often poses a challenge on account of the large number of cells in matrices for typical study areas. The O-D matrix is not the only form of travel information available to transportation planners. This paper introduces the MVA system for estimating OriginDestination trip matrices, which is also to maximise the value of this other information when estimating a matrix. It does not remove the need for O-D surveys but helps to limit the costs associated with them. The software system has been developed partly under contract to the Rijkswaterstaat, the Dutch Ministry of Transport.
