INTERACTIVE GRAPHICS IN HIGHWAY ENGINEERING

IN SEPTEMBER 1970, AN NCHRP PROJECT WAS INITIATED THAT HAD AS ITS OVERALL OBJECTIVE THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN INTERACTIVE COMPUTER GRAPHICS SOFTWARE SUSTEM CAPABLE OF BEING USED BY HIGHWAY ENGINEERS IN THE DESIGN OF HIGHWAYS. THE FIRST PHASE OF THE PROJECT WAS COMPLETED IN AUGUST 1971 AND CONSISTED OF THE FOLLOWING MAJOR ACTIVITIES: REVIEW AND DEFINITION OF INTERACTIVE DESIGN AND ROADWAY PERSPECTIVE SYSTEM APPLICABLE TO HIGHWAY ENGINEERING; DEVELOPMENT OF SPECIFICATIONS FOR INTERACTIVE GRAPHICS SOFTWARE, USER ACTION REQUIREMENTS, AND MODIFICATIONS TO CURRENT SYSTEM AND PROGRAMS; REVIEW AND DELINEATION OF INTERACTIVE GRAPHICS TERMINAL HARDWARE SPECIFICATIONS; AND CONSOLIDATION OF FINDINGS AND DETERMINATION OF THE FEASIBILITY OF INTERACTIVE GRAPHICS TO THE HIGHWAY DESIGN PROCESS. THE END RESULT OF THE PROJECT WILL BE A NEW METHOD OF COMPUTER-AIDED ROADWAY DESIGN. /AUTHOR/
