The paper applies GIS techniques and a non-linear model (spline functions) to analyse empirically the relationship between the job-housing ratio and urban commuting patterns in terms of vehicle miles travelled and trip length. A dynamic buffering process in GIS is developed to measure the jobs-housing ratio within floating catchment areas of a 8-11 radius as opposed to pre-defined and arbitrary jurisdictional boundaries. A non-linear relationship is found between the job-housings ratio and VMT and trip length in the Portland, Oregon, metropolitan area
