    Transportation Visualization

Course Organizer(s):



    This class will highlight how transportation planners, engineers and members of the Transportation Research Board’s Committee on Visualization in Transportation are using computer graphics techniques and interactive visual displays in their system planning, project design, construction and public involvement activities. Practical examples include the depiction of how three-dimensional models of alternate roundabout treatments in roadway designs are currently being used in conjunction with microsimulation models of driver-vehicle interactions to evaluate alternative crossing solutions for visually impaired pedestrians at roundabouts and channelized turn lanes. We would like to share some of our observations with the SIGGRAPH community to gain additional insight and foster future cross disciplinary interaction.
