HIGHWAY PERSPECTIVE PLOT 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, AND (3) PLOT COMMAND LANGUAGE TRANSLATOR. THE HIGHWAY PERSPECTIVE PLOT PROGRAM ACCEPTS OUTPUT FROM THE TEMPLATE CONVERTER PROGRAM IN THE FORM OF THREE-DIMENSION COORDINATES OF TEMPLATE POINTS AND POINT CODES. THE DATA OUTPUT BY TEMPLATE CONVERTER ORIGINATES FROM THE EARTHWORK AND ALIGNMENT COMPUTATIONS. THE PERSPECTIVE PLOT PROGRAM PERFORMS A PERSPECTIVE TRANSFORMATION, REMOVES THOSE LINES NOT VISIBLE TO THE VIEWER AND OUTPUTS DATA TO THE PLOT COMMAND LANGUAGE TRANSLATOR PROGRAM WHICH IN TURN CREATES THE MAGNETIC TAPE USED FOR PLOTTING THE PERSPECTIVE VIEWS. THE REPORT INCLUDES A USER GUIDE, PROGRAM DOCUMENTATION, SOURCE PROGRAM LISTING AND AN EXAMPLE PROBLEM. /FHWA/
