We do Transportation Research
The Nebraska Transportation Center (NTC) integrates transportation research, education, and technology transfer programs across the four NU campuses, making it one of the largest university transportation centers in the region. The Mid-America Transportation Center and Midwest Roadside Safety Facility operate under NTC.
Transportation Engineering Seminar Series: Dr. Jason Hawkins
Friday, October 6, 2023
The transportation system is strongly linked to land use and built form decisions. This presentation, “An Introduction to Land Use Modeling and Urban Economics”, will provide an historical overview of land use modeling and its basis in urban economics. We will discuss both firm and household location choice. A brief summary of the current state of land use models within integrated modeling systems will be provided based on experience working on several of the state-of-the art models.
