Sharing data between GIS software (Arc/Info) and Traffic Demand Modeling Software (EMME/2) has long been an issue of interest to traffic engineers. A literature review and evaluation of current efforts on the data exchange is given in this paper. The authors also developed their own economical method to realize the data transform through Matlab programming. As a practice, a model of the truck flow pattern in Lyon County, Minnesota is developed by the integrated use of Arc/Info, EMME/2, Enif, and the Matlab program. The combined use of these programs overcame the disadvantage of a single software and achieved expected objective. The program is free to anyone who have interests.
