Model Input Basics

    The model inputs are provided using the following CSV files:

    • config.csv - provides job configuration information
    • stations.csv - information about the proposed stations
    • freqgroups.csv - used to adjust the service frequency of existing stations
    • exogenous.csv- data on new housing, population and/or employment

    These files should be placed in a folder named input located in the directory path provided to the sdft_submit() function via the dirpath parameter.

    Example input files are provided with the sdft R package in the 'inst' folder.

    For details about each configuration file, see:
