 +====== Introduction ======
 +Dynamic Urban Systems for Transportation (**DynusT**) is the latest dynamic traffic simulation and assignment tool for regional operational planning analysis. The goals of developing **DynusT** are to promote the advanced modeling theories and techniques to assist transportation agencies and practitioners in improved modeling and transportation policy decision making through state-of-the-art tools. It is also one of the goals to make DynusT an open source project to allow university researchers to develop further dynamic traffic assignment research based on DynusT platform. ​
 +
 +**DynusT** has been developed mainly by researchers at the [[http://​dynust.web.arizona.edu/​AU/​index.php|DynusT Laboratory]] at the Department of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics (**CEEM**) at the University of Arizona. To view DynusT simulation [[http://​dynust.net/​index.php?​option=com_content&​view=category&​layout=blog&​id=32&​Itemid=105|click here]].
 +
 +**DynusT** research team collaborates with Prof. Xuesong Zhou at the University of Utah in the development of the graphical user interface (UI) **NEXTA**. **NEXTA** serves as the free of charge input-output GUI for DynusT. In 2012 RST Internationals Corps. released a new commercial GUI for DynusT called **DynuStudio**. **DynuStudio** offers expanded visualization and data management capabilities. **DynuStudio** is also more scalable and more efficient operating on large-scale networks. More details can be found [[http://​dynust.net/​index.php?​option=com_content&​view=article&​id=198:​dynustudio&​catid=907:​news&​Itemid=132|here]].
 +
 +**DynusT** users and researchers have also contributed to the development and enhancement of this document as well as all utility software supporting DynusT applications. ​

 +===== How to Use the Online User's Manual =====
 +
 +  * **Navigation Page**\\
 +The left panel shows the entire wiki manual. ​ By clicking on the red arrow next to each title, the table of contents can be shown for each page.

 +The table of contents appears at the upper right corner of each page.  This varies per page, and quickly brings the user to a certain section.
 +
 +  * **Trace**\\
 +At the top of the DynusT Wiki, under the title, is an application that traces the user's steps using a "​breadcrumb"​ method. ​ The user can quickly jump to any page they had previously visited. ​ This prevents the hassle of constantly clicking the "​back"​ button on the internet browser.
 +
 +  * **Images**\\
 +Please be aware that all images within this Wiki user's manual can be clicked on. When an image is clicked, the Wiki will divert the user to the source page of the image with information pertaining to that image, as well as a display of the image'​s full-size. This is helpful in the case that an image is too small; the full-size image may be more clear to decipher its content. ​
