Statistical modeling of discrete transportation outcomes including Big Data

A modeling framework for the analysis of detailed activity data will be presented using a discrete outcome approach. 

In this framework, a technique for handling large fine resolution activity data will be discussed, and the implications of using that technique for application to aggregate origin-destination databases will be presented.
