The continuous improvement of means of communication is an effort that must have the highest of priorities.. Without effective communication our designers have difficulty in coordinating their designs and the citizenry cannot comprehend the Department's intentions. Without effective communication the best of ideas can be stillborn and vital projects can be delayed or abandoned due to a lack of understanding.
The three dimensional scale model, because it enables the viewer to see rather than just visualize ideas, is a communication tool that must be utilized to its maximum usefulness. It is a design tool that can have as great an influence on highway design procedures as did the electronic computer.
Among the dictionary definitions of a model is; "a set of plans for a building", "a miniature representation of something" and "a system of postulates, data and inferences presented as a mathematical description of an entity or state of affairs". Under this broad definition, models can be computer printouts, field data recorded in survey books, construction drawings and cross-sections, as well as three dimensional presentations showing the final appearance of a proposed project.
It is not unique to use one form of model to make another more understandable. For example, the field notes used to prepare topography and cross-sections is conveyed as mathematical models. This data must then be translated by draftsmen into two dimensional models we call drawings before it can be of practical use.
