using TRANSIM and python and GIS

Discussion created by ouspensky on Jun 18, 2012
I am new to using GIS (1 week now).  what I want to do is use the TRANSIM modules I downloaded directly in GIS user-interface.  is it possible to use them in the model builder?  alternatively has anyone written a python script that chains them together in sequence so I can send my source shape files out to TRANSIM and get a the returned shapefiles loaded into my map?  Ideally I would like to use GIS and TRANSIM together to function as if I had TRANSCAD. thanks
