Computer graphics, Traffic engineering -- Florida -- Orange County
This project developed computer graphics to display spatial and statistical data in a functional, appropriate and articulate manner. The spatial data creates mapping of Orange County focusing on traffic zones. The graphs display statistical data projecting from spatial areas presented in a simple form. The graphs produced by the system are geared towards an audience involved with transportation and planning decisions for Orange County. The graphics employ population, income, number of dwelling units, trip generation and trip production data based upon the 1980 census. The population, income, and number of dwelling unites statistics include predictions for 1985 through 2005 in five-year increments. The trip generation and production data is divided into six categories. These groups of statistics were chosen owing to their effect on the transportation system and travel characteristics of Orange County. The two-dimensional graphs display only spatial data. The three-dimensional graphs permit examination of one data category projecting from a large spatial area or up to four data categories projecting from one small six mile square of Orange County. All graphs presented in a three-dimensional form can be rotated around two axes.
