Description

TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Synthesis 361: Visualization for Project Development explores the visual representation of proposed alternatives and improvements and their associated effects on the existing surroundings. The report examines the best practices and experiences within transportation agencies that are developing and incorporating visualization into the project development process.

Errata Notice

NCHRP Synthesis 361 contained incorrect information in two places on page 24. The last line in the paragraph under the heading "Organization" (column one) should read: In 1995, visualization became operational; a formal group was established that is still in place today. Also, the first line in the final paragraph in column two under the heading "Research and Development" should read: Visualization research is ongoing as the technology evolves.
