A DIGITAL COMPUTER TECHNIQUE FOR CALCULATING COSTS OF RIGHT-OF-WAY

THIS ARTICLE DESCRIBES A DIGITAL COMPUTER PROGRAM FOR MAKING A LAND COST ANALYSIS ALONG A HIGHWAY RIGHT-OF-WAY. THE PRINCIPLE PRINCIPLE EMPLOYED FOR DETERMINING A RUNNING /PER STATION/ COST ALONG THE CENTERLINE PROJECTION IS BASICALLY ONE OF MATRIX THEORY. ESSENTIALLY, TWO MATRICES EXIST WITHIN THE SYSTEM, ONE USED TO DEFINE THE LOCATION OF THE ROUTE CENTERLINE IS SUPERIMPOSED ON ANOTHER USED TO ASSIGN VARYING COSTS TO PIECES OF LAND IN THE AREA. FOLLOWING DEVELOPMENT IN THE PROGRAM WRITTEN IN FORTRAN CODING, AN ANALYSIS WAS CONDUCTED ON FIVE HYPOTHETICAL LINES . LIMITATIONS OF THE APPROACH AND POSSIBLE APPLICATIONS ARE DISCUSSED. /AUTHOR/
