Traffic
Traffic flow and vehicle profiles can be altered in traffic simulation, which also takes into consideration vertical slopes and the vehicle performance. The traffic after the opening of a new bypass or a large attraction, such as a shopping mall, can be simulated, and linkage with traffic analysis software enables UC-win/Road as a simple visual 3D traffic simulation.

Landscape Law "Landscape law and road design guidelines (plans)"

As a response to "Policy outline for beautiful country", established by the Land, Infrastructure and Transportation Ministry in July, 2003, landscape guideline "Road design guideline (plans)" was created for road environments.
The guideline took the "green and landscape law" established in June 2004 into consideration, which is recommended to reflect the quality of all roads as a general rule in road maintenance and improvement.
The definition of road in the guideline is "Road landscape should be considered together with road schemes, plans, designs, construction, and maintenance rather than considering them separately.
The extent of the consideration should go beyond the road itself and should include the surrounding areas". For this reason, large-scale 3-D VR space should be utilized as a useful help in road designing.
