  • directionality - whether a road is one-way, two-way or no-entrance
  • grade - the level of a road with respect to surround roads. So a road would normally be a level grade. A road going underneath in a tunnel would be a -1 grade. A road going over would be a +1 grade. At complicated junctions such as freeway interchanges there can be many levels. So on a flat map we assign levels to show that while the roads cross, they do not connect because they are at different heights
  • freeway - motorway; the major road system in your country
  • geometry - the layout of a road. Each road is made up of straight line segments. These can be arbitrarily short, effectively allowing curves
  • motorway - freeway; the major road system in your country
  • ramp - a freeway entrance or exit; sliproad. Ramps may be on-ramps or off-ramps. Ramps are often at a different grade from the connecting road or freeway.
  • sliproad - a motorway entrance or exit; ramp. Sliproads are often at a different grade from the connecting road or motorway.
