The paper presents two visualization applications that enable to visualize traffic flow simulation results obtained with the TRANSIMS system. The applications, designed and implemented at the Institute of Machines and Motor Vehicles of Poznan University of Technology, are written in Java and, as freeware, can be used free of charge. Both visualizers use GIS-based data manipulation techniques to provide precise and customizable 2D visualization.
First, the problem of traffic flow modeling and simulation, and the TRANSIMS system were introduced. Then a general design and features of both applications were described. In order to demonstrate the most essential capabilities of the tools, the author presented an example of visualization of traffic in a segment of a real urban network
