Highlights

Emme Scenes is a new 3D, interactive mapping framework that lets you view, explore, analyze and produce high-performance animations and record videos using the data in your Emme Project.

Make sure to read the Introducing Emme Scenes post to see some of the ways that you can animate time-of-day results, traffic flows, regional travel patterns and accessibility, and simulation playback to explore your travel model in new ways.

The Schedule-based Transit Assignment procedure has been upgraded and optimized, and now works with robust crowding procedures so that it is suitable for transit service planning applications using e-ticketing and fare card data in high-frequency, urban settings. Results are available in existing worksheets, as well as in a new transit space-time chart and simulation playback animation.

The Network Editor makes it easier to work with selections, identify and sort network elements, navigate through transit lines and segments, and set, copy and paste attributes.

A new Expression Builder helps to author expressions with context-sensitive attributes, operands, operators and relational pointers, making it easier to compute statistics, modify data with calculations or to filter and style data in maps, charts and tables.

And many more features and enhancements including:

  • Support for new network, matrix, path and station-to-station results from an Extended Transit Assignment as well as explicit support for circular transit lines

  • Major enhancements to multiclass traffic and transit demand adjustment tools including easy specification of screenline and trip-end targets, improved specification of objective function weights and coefficients, as well as new tools for Congested and Capacitated transit demand adjustment

  • A new hardware-accelerated accessibility and shortest path query tool

  • Additional extra function parameters for use in volume-delay functions to support a variety of applications 

  • An increase in the number of nodes available per licence size

  • Longer transit line name and descriptions
