TIGRIS XL Land Use Transport Interaction model

Read this case

Tigris XL is a so-called Land Use Transport Interaction (LUTI) model for the Netherlands. A first version of the model was developed around 2005, commissioned by the Ministry of Transport and Water, to provide insight into the spatial effects of options for new infrastructure and the accessibility effects of urban strategies. Since 2011, the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (PBL) has become a co-owner of the model and PBL uses the model for scenario and evaluation studies.
