Cross-section modules

Modules to plan and design the route in the cross-section view.

Cross-Section Editor

Cross-Section Editor

This module enables you to perform your cross-sectional design and calculation tasks. All editing is done in the graphics, starting with the design of cross-sections right through to the determination of volumes. Any existing width strings, cross-fall strings and vertical alignments can be used as planning aids.

If required, you can obtain a 3D effect by taking the neighbouring chainages into account when deciding on design issues.

You can also interactively calculate the cross-section volumes and you can output these volumes together with the individual values. more >

Cross-Section Design / Cross-Section Design Rail

Cross-Section Design

You can design and edit cross-sections and surface structure lists in a highly automatic manner with this module. This module is a very versatile tool to work on projects with many special conditions and different guidelines while keeping the planning time and costs to a minimum.

The cross-section designer offers unlimited freedom during the design process, making it possible to turn your ideas into reality. more >

Cross-Section Transformation

This module enables you to transform and move cross-sections. The cross-section lines are transformed so that they retain their original approximate plan position.

Moving cross-section lines is useful if the chainages of the alignment originally used have had to be modified during the design process. The use of this function eliminates the need to create new cross-sections at the modified chainages. This is especially useful if the cross-sections cannot be generated again, either because they were created manually or have been extensively revised. more >

Volumes from Cross-Sections

Volumes from Cross-Sections

You can calculate volumes and surfaces from cross-sections according to the guidelines REB-VB 21.003 and REB-VB 21.013. Any data and parameters used to control a volume calculation are saved, thus enabling the calculation to be entirely checked and analysed at any time. more >

Cross-Section Drawing / Cross-Section Drawing Rail

Cross-Section Drawing

You can create cross-section drawings with individual sheet positioning, flexible annotation and design.

You can display and output surveying vehicles, road and rail furniture objects, trees and hedges. more >

Cross-Sections from Points

This module enables you to calculate cross section lines and longitudinal profile lines according to the guidelines REB-VB 20.003 from existing cross-sections and longitudinal profiles which have been surveyed as topographic points. more >

Cross-Sections from Lines

Cross-Sections from Lines

You can calculate alignment related cross-sections and longitudinal profiles from lines of the CARD/1 base map. This method is very convenient if the base map data provides sufficient information or the creation of a digital terrain model is not required or not possible; e.g. digitized contour lines. more >

Base Map from Cross-Sections

You can import the relevant cross-sectional information, e.g. points, lines and slopes into the base map. more >

Sight Distances

Sight distances

With one mouse click, you can determine the required as well as the actual stopping and overtaking sight distances; for both directions of travel and according to the relevant guidelines. You can calculate the actual sight distances by choosing either a vertical alignment-related 2D method or a complex 3D method which takes the three dimensional geometry of the road into account.

The information on the determined sight distances is displayed in a very clear manner in the graphics and can be integrated into longitudinal profile drawings, cross-section drawings and into base maps. The required sight distances can easily be determined using the CARD/1 route simulation.

This module supports the BIM planning process more >

CARD/1 makes it easy to check that your designs are in line with the Visualisation Guidelines HViSt for standard spatial elements, concealed starts of curves and critical areas of obstructed vision.
