Abstract

Enhancing visual attractiveness in a routing plan has proven to be an effective way to facilitate practical implementation and positive collaboration among planning and operational levels in transportation. Several authors, driven by the requests of practitioners, have considered, either explicitly or implicitly, such aspect in the optimization process for different routing applications. However, due to its subjective nature, there is not a unique way of evaluating the visual attractiveness of a routing solution. The aim of this paper is to provide an overview of the literature on visual attractiveness. In particular, we analyze and experimentally compare the different metrics that were used to model the visual attractiveness of a routing plan and provide guidelines that planners and researchers can use to select the method that better suits their needs.
