TEMPLATE CONVERTER PROGRAM

THIS COMPUTER PROGRAM REPRESENTS ONE OF THREE FORTRAN IV PROGRAMS NECESSARY TO GENERATE PERSPECTIVE VIEWS OF HIGHWAYS FROM DESIGN DATA. THE THREE PROGRAMS COMPRISING THE PERSPECTIVE PLOT SYSTEM ARE: (1) TEMPLATE CONVERTER; (2) HIGHWAY PERSPECTIVE PLOT; (3) PLOT COMMAND LANGUAGE TRANSLATOR. THE TEMPLATE CONVERTER PROGRAM PERFORMS ESSENTIALLY A BOOKKEEPING FUNCTION FOR THE PERSPECTIVE PLOT PROGRAM. IT ACCEPTS THREE-DIMENSIONAL COORDINATES OF TEMPLATE POINTS AND CORRESPONDING POINT CODES FROM AVAILABLE EARTHWORK DESIGN PROGRAMS THAT HAVE THIS CAPABILITY AND CONVERTS THEM FOR INPUT INTO THE HIGHWAY PERSPECTIVE PLOT PROGRAM. THE TEMPLATE CONVERTER PROGRAM INSURES THAT INPUT DATA RECORDS ARE BY STATION, THAT EACH RECORD CONTAINS THE SAME NUMBER OF TEMPLATE POINTS AND THAT POINT CODES ARE PROPERLY ASSIGNED FOR GENERATING CONNECTING LINES. THE PROGRAM ACCOMMODATES UP TO 500 STATION RECORDS, A MAXIMUM OF 97 POINTS PER CROSS-SECTION AFTER TEMPLATE CONVERSION WHICH REPRESENTS A MAXIMUM OF SIX ROADWAYS. THE REPORT CONTAINS A USER GUIDE, PROGRAM DOCUMENTATION AND A SOURCE PROGRAM LISTING. /FHWA/
