Cross section templates allow you to set parameters such as road width, surfacing depths, shoulders, ditches and cut/fill slopes.

Templates interact with topography, super-elevation, sub-surfaces, and alignment(s) to produce final design cross sections. It is important to understand that templates are not static; they adapt to each cross section.

Users will typically create a set of standard templates for use in common design situations. Templates, template components and road class specifications are stored in a template table.

This section will introduce you to templates and the Template Table Editor.
