N2 - This analyzed sight distances contemplating both vertical and horizontal curves of a tourist bound destination highway in Camarines Sur particularly the Lagonoy to Presentacion section. The Quantum Geographic Information System (QGIS) was used. The data were validated through site observation. The radius, tangent and sight distances for horizontal curves were obtained through graphical measurement while the elevations, length, slopes of both forward and back tangents, and sight distances of vertical curves were computed using mathematics formula. The decision sight distance and the equivalent maximum speed values were deduced through the policies imposed by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO [1]). The highway has numerous horizontal and vertical curves with radius, tangent distances, intersecting angles, curve lengths; elevations of point of curvature (PC), point of tangencies (PT), and point of intersections (PI); and slope of forward and back tangent accorded to short sight distances which delimit car speeds to avoid accident. Through the obtained sight distance data, the maximum speed limit map was completed.
