This paper describes the integration of geographic information systems (GIS) with simulation modeling of traffic flow on inland waterways. Two separate modeling efforts are described: (a) GIS/AutoMod modeling of barge traffic on the Ohio River, and (b) GIS/Arena modeling of the transit of ocean-going vessels through the Panama Canal. These modeling efforts demonstrate the benefits that accrue both to modeling realism and to the initialization process with discrete-event models of traffic flow on these waterways.
