POITRA photographers made an aerial photo survey of the site by helocopter from which the simulation base photograph was to be selected. The Railroad decided on a view that included the transportation options which would be an important component in site selection.
UPRR provided preliminary CADD site plans for the proposed facility which were perspective matched to the aerial base photograph. POITRA then painted the areas of layout using it's experience visiting similar existing facilities. Truck runways were rendered as concrete and auto parking as asphalt using digital painting methods. All rail, roadway and parking striping were added in the same manner. The layout was populated using POITRA 3D stock model railroad equipment.
POITRA Visual has had plenty of experience working with rail intermodal facilities and it's principals have actual railroad bridge design experience. The simulation process is always much more efficient when the artists are familiar with the industry.
A display board was designed by POITRA graphic artists to hold the completed simulation.
The finished display board was delivered as a printed mounted panel to UPRR staff members for their presentation to top Ford executives.
