Representations of human interactions and their involvements need to be included into such planning systems. This demand for detailed information about the resident population is usually fulfilled by artificially generated population based on available Census data. Despite the richness in demographic attributes, the location resolution of such synthetic populations remains at the spatial resolution specified by the input census data...
