The ARTES highway design system is described briefly. It displays the geometrical elements composing a highway alignment (horizontal alignment, vertical alignment, natural ground and highway cross sections), and displays composed elements such as perspective views and visibility diagrams. It prints out earthworks quantities, plots all graphical elements and enables the program user to modify the geometrical elements composing the alignment thus making it possible to study multiple alternatives affecting construction costs and user conditions.
