LineMap is a major breakthrough in productivity for traffic and highway engineers. It combines the power of CAD with the simplicity of word processing, to provide a fast and accurate design tool with the option to build up inventory and maintenance records for a whole authority.
Product Name: RouteMap
- Service Providers
Data translation, visualisation and routing all in one package. The ITN layer of MasterMap from Ordnance Survey is an up-to-date road network containing information about many types of traffic restriction. RouteMap takes this data, and displays it clearly and accurately for anyone to query and use.
Product Name: SignLoad
With Eurocode EN 12899 and new passive safety requirements, it has become increasingly complicated for traffic sign designers to specify safe, but economical, post sizes and other structural elements.
SignLoad greatly simplifies the process
SignMap is a comprehensive, map-based traffic sign design, display and management system.
Through integration of maintenance and other inventory functions with a design tool for new signing schemes, the permanent record is kept updated and fewer costly design mistakes occur. SignMap provides the means to tackle both these requirements and can aid visualisation (e.g. for public consultation) with its colourful display.
Product Name: SignPlot
SignPlot is the only system to fully automate the layout and spacing rules of the Traffic Signs Regulations (TSRGD 2002) and Traffic Signs Manual.
SignPlot makes sign design quick and accurate for both new and experienced designers.
Product Name: SignRoute
The frustration and confusion suffered by the traveling public due to absent or inconsistent direction signing may have a greater impact on road safety than has been previously recognised. Increased stress levels, sudden lane switches, dangerous u-turns and scanning of verges for guidance instead of concentrating on the road ahead can all result in road crashes.
SignRoute can help you achieve a well designed and consistent system of directional signing.
SurveyMap is the ideal tool for storage, analysis and assessment of parking survey data. It provides instant access to information and flexibility during analysis and reporting that could make trawling through numerous hard copy reports and spreadsheets a thing of the past. SurveyMap was developed in association with Colin Buchanan and The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
