There is another page on "Synthetic Population". These two pages need to be merged.

--Kermit Wies (talk) 22:23, 19 February 2014 (UTC) oops. Sorry Rolf. I'll fix it. Would you prefer we house the merged information on a page called "Synthetic Population" or "Population Synthesis"?

--Rolf Moeckel (talk) 23:41, 19 February 2014 (UTC) Good question. I always used "Synthetic Population," so I assumed that's the right term. Google has 60 Mio hits for "Synthetic Population" and 36 Mio hits for "Population Synthesis," but many may refer to non-transportation modeling topics. Wikipedia.org doesn't now either term. Ortúzar and Willumsen (Modelling Transport) call it "Population Synthesis." So here is what I propose: Let's go with Ortúzar and Willumsen (and Wies) and have the main page under "Population Synthesis." We keep the page "Synthetic Population" where we provide nothing but a link to "Population Synthesis." D'accord?

--Kermit Wies (talk) 22:58, 20 February 2014 (UTC) I copied the content from "Synthetic Population" To "Population Synthesis". Then I added a "redirect" from "Synthetic Population" to "Population Synthesis". It appears that Ortúzar and Willumsen (Modelling Transport) is a textbook. Please consider composing a Resource Page about their book and linking to this page.
