Abstract : The plan of the document is as follows: Section II discusses two dimensions of urban form. Specific policy questions are identified and a brief sketch of how this research will provide predictive tools to deal more effectively with these questions is presented. Section III describes in more detail the approach used to relate changes in transportation system characteristics to changes in urban form. Section IV presents several potential applications of the approach. The Appendix describes some of the available data sources.
