Abstract:

This report describes SPAN Statistical Processing and Analysis system as a large-scale management, file processing, and statistical analysis system, programmed for the IBM 70907094. Reports that its development was initiated at the Penn-Jersey Transportation Study to support a comprehensive simulation model of regional growth. Reviews some of the aspects of Penn-Jerseys experience leading to the development of the SPAN concept, and reports that SDC is expanding this system to make it available to the larger community of urban data users. Reports that two initial volumes of the SPAN system reference manual TM-1563, TM-156301300, have been published. Author
