A photo-simulation was used to illustrate view impacts in an a typical area between Colorado Boulevard and Dahlia Street. POITRA photograpers shot a variety of views and the Engineer selected the base photograph.
Poitra provided expertly-done photo simulations, and sometimesunder tight time constraints, which were instrumental in conveying project concepts to our audiences. ”

POITRA prepared the original photograph by removing old power poles and adding a traffic barrier separation. These tasks were completed using traditional digital painting techniques.
POITRA modelers then created a 3D site model that included the EMU catenary system, a double mainline track and roadbed, right-of-way fencing, signage and the EMU vehicles. The proposed vehicle had not yet been manufactured and existed only as a POITRA custom 3D model. The site model was camera matched, lighted, rendered and composited with the photograph to create final photo-simulation.
POITRA also illustrated the effect of a roadway widening on the western edge of the Park Hill Municipal Golf Course, the at grade crossing at Dahlia and the viaduct over Airport Boulevard and I-70 in other East Corridor Project Photosimulation.
The finished simulations were used in meetings with the City and County of Denver, Fastracks public stakeholders and also in the EIS document.
