This report describes the research done to develop a new method that estimates an a-priori matrix from measured floating car data (FCD). The purpose of estimating this matrix is to increase the quality of the input for OD matrix estimation methods and hence to improve the estimation itself. In addition, the report describes methods to use the FCD to analyse route choices and trip lengths. The results for the a-priori matrix and the route choice are used, together with traffic counts, to estimate OD matrices. Finally, the report describes a complete OD matrix estimation method.
