Visualising the Road Network, Quickly and down to the millimetre
Manual inspections of traffic situations are too unsafe and accident reports often present an incomplete picture. For that reason, Iv developed a new method for which it visualised the road network in Utrecht using a 3D scanning vehicle. This allows bottlenecks, road characteristics and maintenance level to be visualised in a single operation without impeding traffic. Using the scanning data, Iv developed an interactive map that South Holland province can use to focus on those road characteristics that are important for traffic safety. The data obtained about the road and its immediate surroundings can also be used for other applications.
