Enif - Toward a New Interface for EMME/2
EMME/2 Support Center,
Haldenstrasse 16, CH-2558 Aegerten, Switzerland
This paper is aimed at presenting a first introduction to Enif, a new
software which provides a modern graphical user interface for
accessing existing EMME/2 data banks. Enif is not intended to
replace EMME/2, but to coexist with EMME/2 and complement it.
The main goal of the paper is to discuss the design of Enif
and explain the technical concepts on which it is based.
These are not limited to the graphic user interface and the
production of high quality graphic output, but go all the way
down to defining new mechanisms how to store and handle
network data and how to provide user configurable objects.
In fact, the only thing Enif has in common with EMME/2 is
that both can be used to access the same EMME/2 data banks.
Output examples produced with the current pre-production
implementation of Enif are included in order to illustrate
how Enif's features can be combined in a very flexible way
to produce a great variety of network related graphic output.
