Anadelta Tessera / Editions
Standard:The Standard Edition includes everything a civil engineer needs to complete any road or highway project.
Professional:The Professional Edition provides the following additional features:
Wider range of transition curves
In addition to standard transition curves used in road construction, such as circle-clothoid-circle, the Professional Edition offers parabola curves, tailored specifically for railroad planning, as well as more complex compositions (clothoid-arc-clothoid-arc-clothoid, etc)
Tessera offers the capability to create a new road by means of copying and transforming the geometric structure of an existing one. This feature greatly facilitates the design and layout of service roads. After a service road has been created, it can be independently modified, diverted or generally edited in any way. However, the cross sections of a service road can be designated as extensions of the respective cross sections of the main road. More importantly, this feature can be used on a per segment basis and any road can serve as the main road. This capability comes in handy for setting the branch road cross sections on intersections.
Multiple terrain models
Tessera supports the coexistence of many TINs in the same project. Each TIN can represent a different layer or even a set of points without elevation data (which we may wish to subsequently retrieve from a separate triangulation). Every terrain object has its own computational parameters (e.g. elevation range, contour dimension, breakline insertion, maximum triangle side length), as well as rendering settings (wireframe, relief shaded, colored, etc). Tessera can also calculate the exact volumetric difference between two terrain objects or between an object and a user-defined plane.
Lite:The Lite Edition has all the features and capabilities of the Standard Edition with the following limitations:
- One road per project
- Maximum road length of 1.5 Km
- Terrain can have up to 5,000 points
- Available in English language only
