This animation of a calculation with the traffic planning software VISUM shows the Levels of Service on major German roadways at a typical weekday - The data for traffic generation (demand data) are taken from a traffic demand model, which includes statistical socio-demographic and traffic behavior data and which has a rather high resolution for a model of this size (10.000 traffic zones) - Thus what you see in the animation is not a visualization of measured data but the result of a calculation - Therefore the VALIDATE model can be used to assess the impact of new roads under consideration on their whole region in detail - This animation only shows the largest roads (motorways and trunk roads), yet VALIDATE also includes all major regional and inner-city roads
