Crosswalk And Stop Line Tool

The Crosswalk and Stop Line Tool can be used to add crosswalks and stop lines between corners at intersections.

Note: Free-form crosswalks can be created using the Marking Curve Tool. Where possible, use the Crosswalk And Stop Line Tool instead. Crosswalks and stop lines created in this tool have more semantic linkage to the road topology.

Add a Single Crosswalk to a Junction

  1. Click the Crosswalk and Stop Line Tool button.
  2. Optionally, select a desired crosswalk style in the Library Browser.
  3. Click the corner of a junction that you want the crosswalk to start from.
  4. Right-click the corner that you want the crosswalk to end at (in the same junction).

Tip: If you need to create a standalone crosswalk (that is, a crosswalk along a road that does not involve an intersection), you can use the Custom Junction Tool to create a junction along a single road.

You can also create free-form crosswalks anywhere in your scene using the Marking Curve Tool (with a Crosswalk Marking Asset selected). Note that free-form crosswalks might lack certain export-related functionality.

Quickly Add All Crosswalks to a Junction

  1. Click the Crosswalk and Stop Line Tool button.
  2. Check that no junctions are selected.
  3. Optionally, select a desired crosswalk style in the Library Browser.
  4. Right-click a junction to add crosswalks across each road.

Delete a Crosswalk

  1. Click the Crosswalk and Stop Line Tool button.
  2. Select a crosswalk.
  3. Press the Delete key or select Edit > Delete from the Menu Bar.

Assign a Style to a Crosswalk

  1. Enter the Crosswalk and Stop Line Tool.
  2. Select the crosswalk you want to edit.
  3. Click and drag a Crosswalk Marking Asset from the Library Browser onto the Crosswalk Style widget in the Attributes Panel.

Alternatively, click and drag a Crosswalk Marking Asset from the Library Browser onto a crosswalk in the scene.

Adjust the Location of a Crosswalk

After creating a crosswalk, you can move the locations of the crosswalk's end points (for example, to create crosswalks that cross a road at an angle).

  1. Click the Crosswalk and Stop Line Tool button.
  2. Select the crosswalk you want to edit.
  3. Click and drag a point at the end of the crosswalk. Alternatively, adjust the Left Corner Offset and Right Corner Offset values in the Attributes Panel.

Note: The points at the end of a crosswalk must lie within the extents of the junction. Note that you can expand the extents of a junction by extending the corners using the Corner Tool.

Stopping Locations

Stopping locations are computed for all lanes approaching a junction. Stopping locations define the starting location of all maneuvers.

Stopping locations shown as blue chevrons:

View Stopping Locations for a Junction 

  1. Click the Crosswalk and Stop Line Tool button.
  2. Select the junction you want to edit.

Add Stop Lines to a Junction

Preview shows where stop line will appear:

The new stop line updates the stopping locations:

  1. Click the Crosswalk and Stop Line Tool button.
  2. Select the junction you want to edit.
  3. Right-click the road at the location where you want to add a new stop line node.

Stop Line Editing

  1. Click the Crosswalk and Stop Line Tool button.
  2. Select the junction you want to edit.
  3. Stop line editing is similar to marking curves. See Marking Curve Tool for documentation on how to edit stop lines. 

Multiple Stop Lines

Multiple stop lines can be added to a single approach to add unique stopping locations for each lane.
