UC-win/Road Ver.6.01.00 (Release March 8, 2012)
World file

  • World file is a file with coordinates information standardized to give coordinates information to the street map (map images of the satellite photograph and the aerial photograph, etc.). By importing the street map together with World file, the street map will be automatically placed on top of the specific geographic location written in the World file.
Line Explanation
1 X scale ( Length(m) of each pixel along the X axis)
2 Rotation angle in X direction
3 Rotation angle in Y direction
4 Minus Y scale ( Length(m) of each pixel along the Y axis)
5 East longitude coordinates on the center of the pixel in the upper left corner of the image file.
6 North latitude coordinates on the center of the pixel in the upper left corner of the image file.

Fluid Analysis Plug-in (Price on application)

  • This plug-in is used to import a file in VTK format and visualize the stream line in the data used by the VTK format. The VTK format is a general format, so it's used for various software.

Munsell Color Space Output Plug-in (Price on application)

  • Munsell Color Space Output Plug-in is a plug-in which visualizes the spectacle displayed on the main screen of UC-win/Road in "Munsell color system" and saves it as munsell color file. This style of expression is often used in the field of design and art. You can design the spectacle using munsell color or do a research on munsell color by accessing the file that has been output using this plug-in.

Legion Plug-in (Price on application)

  • Legion plug-in is a plug-in used to visualize analysis result of LEGION STUDIO, a software developed by a British company called Legion that simulates crowd movement. Legion accurately simulates the movement of pedestrians (entities) in a spatial area and then analyzes evacuation time, assess risks, and creates hazard map that can be utilized in the event of an emergency.

Pedestrians' Movement as a Crowd

  • This is the function of crowd simulation considering avoidance of collision between pedestrians. Many pedestrians' behavior at intersections and in other places can be visualized.
    -Improvement in reality
  • -Significant reduction in time required to place pedestrians
Avoidance behavior of pedestrians Pathway

Expansion of support for FBX 3D model

  • Supported file format has been expanded. Animation function was added to FBX file which can support various types of highly precise models.
