Abstract

The Transportation-Efficient Land Use Mapping Index (TELUMI) is a tool to visualize and to quantify micro-level metropolitan land use and development patterns as they affect travel demand. It can assist transportation and urban planning authorities in identifying zones where land use supports multimodal travel and in determining a region's transportation system efficiency. An application of the TELUMI in the Seattle region showed that residential units and employment concentrated in transportation-efficient areas covering less than 20 percent of the region. An interactive,multi-scaled tool, the TELUMIcan also supportscenario buildingto simulate land use changes that improve transportation system performance. Key Words: Geographic Information Systems, land use, mapping index, metropolitan, multimodal travel, transportation efficiency.
