Visualization Guide

The purpose of this guide is to introduce visualization tools and innovative practices to the Federal Lands Highway (FLH) designer with the goal that these techniques and tools will eventually be integrated into most FLH projects, and used whenever there are design issues or communication needs. The guide will help the designer learn to use commonly available software tools to produce visualizations that will help them better understand and communicate their designs. It is also intended to help the user better understand more advanced design visualization (DV) tools and techniques that are available, and allow more effective coordination with FLH visualization staff. The user will also be better equipped to provide required design and model data to outside DV consultants to facilitate the production of better and more effective presentations.
