    Entropy maximising models have become increasingly popular among geographers and regional scientists over the last = decade. Yet there remains a considerable amount of confusion about the rationale for these models. This paper attempts to clarify the main issues and to illustrate the potential of the entropy maximising procedure in the area of journey-towork modelling. Calibration methods and goodness of fit statistics are discussed. The latter half of the paper analyses recent journey-to-work patterns in County Limerick by the entropy maximising method and concludes by suggesting further applications of the model and areas of research.
