Photo-simulations proved to be the best medium for accurate evaluation and for confident presentation to public stakeholders. POITRA created each photo-simulation with both LRT and trolley vehicles using combined 3D rendering and photo-simulation techniques.
POITRA photographed several views of the area. Once the final view was selected, near a popular community center, the existing curb and gutter, sidewalks, street lights, pedestrians, on-street parking and even lanes of traffic had to be reconfigured to precisely follow the Engineer's design. Only then could the proposed LRT or trolley line be properly placed.
POITRA created a 3D model that included the track bed, rails, and catenary system. The model was camera matched, lighted, rendered and composited with the photograph. POITRA proprietary model Siemans Dewag LRT and Skoda-Astra Trolley vehicles were added to create final photo-simulations.
The finished simulations were used in meetings with Fastracks stakeholders and in the EIS document.
