Title: ROUTES: a computer program for preliminary route location.

Author: Reutebuch, S.E.;

Date: 1988

Source: Gen. Tech. Rep. PNW-GTR-216. Portland, OR: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station. 18 p

Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: An analytical description of the ROUTES computer program is presented. ROUTES is part of the integrated preliminary harvest- and transportation-planning software package, PLANS. The ROUTES computer program is useful where grade and sideslope limitations are important in determining routes for vehicular travel. With the program, planners can rapidly identify route locations on large-scale topographic maps. The program uses a digital terrain model, created by using the MAP computer program in the PLANS package, to produce profile plots and estimates of grades and sides lopes along projected routes. A separate appendix containing detailed instructions for running the ROUTES program is available on request.

Keywords: Timber harvest planning, computer programs/programing, digital terrain model, road location/design
