Application of Cluster Analysisin Trip Attraction Models of Campinas Metropolitan Region

Alexandre Frazão D’Andrea and Maria Teresa Francoso
Abstract—This paper discusses the application of thetravel demand model of similar cities groups from the CampinasMetropolitan Region by means of their economic characteristics. The cities groups were obtained from the statistical technique of multivariate cluster analysis which resulted in 4 clusters. This technique required the choice of a similarity measure and the clustering algorithm. The result obtained were represented by a dendogram that represents clusters of seminaries cities. Demand models correlating trips and job variableswere developed for each cluster. Finally, this article has pointed out that the partition of cities using variables such as jobs has revealed to be the most coherent with the observed data, rather than a model that considers cities in the CMR indistinctively.

Index Terms—Cluster, demand, modelling, transport.
