SITE DESIGN includes quick site modeling features, earthwork calculation, utility design, and productivity tools to speed up project delivery. It is ideal for fast conceptual projects, solution testing projects, detailed design, and earthwork projects including volume calculation, grading, and more. Serving data for machine control guidance, blueprints project delivery, survey data, and for great visualizations.
The terrain design is the main benefit of the new collection. Surface can be created based on the survey data or simply imported from Google Maps. The biggest advantage of this surface tool is that it creates ultralight surface models in an instant.
Google Maps & Google Street View
Google Maps Import makes it easy to import raster images and elevation data of a selected location from Google Maps into a DWG drawing in the selected coordinate system. Google Street View functionality is also available to allow the user to view the selected area interactively within the CAD environment.
Google Earth Export
Digital terrain modeling
Creation of complex slopes with multiple conditions in cut or fill gives users the capability to cover various design scenarios and geometry requirements for all kinds of road projects, from simple forest road design to complex intersection geometry design. Furthermore, creating ponds, parking areas, platforms, roads, rail tracks, river channels, and other features is easier and faster with CGS Labs grading functionality.
Powerful geometry design tools
Plateia provides a wide range of advanced alignment, profile geometry design, and editing tools. They include P(V)I design, floating and fixed elements design, and alignment design created from the existing entities.
Ultimately creating a best-fit alignment based on existing road centerline or road edge survey data. Superelevation calculation features a comprehensive definition and editing tool.
Plateia supports several superelevations definitions and pivot point options according to various European and AASHTO roadway design standards. Several alignment labels according to different country standards, reports, and data export options offer the flexibility to cover a wide range of user requirements.
Intersections and roundabouts
The 3D Intersections function automatically adjusts the secondary road profile and superelevation parameters with corresponding user-defined curb returns.
Automated intersection design results in detailed 3D intersection geometry for X or T-shaped intersection types. Use the grading/surface mode with various parameters to customize 3D intersection geometry.
3D surface and 3D solid model
With 3D solids, we can also build tunnels, bridges and similar objects. Solid objects can be aligned with arcs and transition curves. All solid models, including extended data, can be imported into Autodesk Infraworks, Navisworks and can be used in various BIM workflows.
Detailed cross section design and editing
Visibility and stop sight distance
The road reconstruction / rehabilitation function offers powerful regression analysis tools for best-fit alignment and profile creation based on existing road centerline or road edge surveyed data.
Existing road superelevation comparison with new superelevation calculation and editing enhancements provide designers the needed tools to tackle demanding geometrical restrictions.
Integrated road reconstruction & rehabilitation tools for calculation of material removal and / or resurfacing material quantities result in new 3D road geometry data linked with QTO information.

Autosign is a professional software solution for planning traffic signal design in CAD environments. It generates detailed layouts and reports. Autosign includes extensive collections of country-specific traffic sign libraries and road markings.
Autopath is a professional software for swept path analysis and vehicle turning simulations. With it, you can easily and quickly simulate vehicle maneuvers and check transportability of all types of road design projects: on roads, intersections, roundabouts, hairpin turns, underpasses, overpasses … [read more about Autopath]
*Autopath is available in Plateia Ultimate version.
CGS Labs solutions provide extensive BIM data support not limited to CAD platforms in use. 3D roadway, railway or river channel models are generated as detailed 3D solid objects with extended BIM metadata attached to objects, or as multiple surfaces for use with computer guided machines etc.
Plateia offers capable Property Manager for adding and changing 3D solids property data, which enables COBie (Construction Operations Building Information Exchange) compatibility.
Plateia 3D models and attribute data can be exported to IFC files. IFC export format is regularly updated according to buildingSMART International specifications.
Clash detection tool enables designer to search for possible collisions among selected 3D solid objects within the drawing itself thus saving the time to export models and create clash analysis in third party applications outside CAD environment.
InfraCloud is point cloud automatic recognition extension to PLATEIA, roadway design solution. It is intended for automatic feature extraction from point clouds and 3D road-corridor geometry creation with its specific elements like road pavement, shoulders, curbs, ditches and similar.
Besides geometry, also attribute data is attached. InfraCloud extension reads point cloud data most common used las format. Determination of characteristic points in the point cloud is followed by semantic recognition of elements, which are best defined by these characteristic points. These elements are first represented as feature objects with associated attributes, which represent road-corridor elements.
In the next step, PLATEIA generates 3D BIM road corridor as solid object, which is a base for IFC export, open BIM file format.
InfraCloud Extension is already available. For more information, please contact us at email@example.com
