Photo-simulation was determined to be the best medium for accurate visual evaluation and for confident presentation to public stakeholders.
POITRA created the photo-simulation on an Engineer provided photograph. The existing laneage, ramps, walls and traffic were shifted to match the conceptual design and other corridor element were added. These tasks were accomplished using traditonal digital painting techniques.
Thanks again for the fast turnover on this one. The new vehicle model is fantastic!”

The Siemens Duewag 100 LRT vehicle was the RTD's prefered vehicle. Modelers at POITRA had created a custom detailed technical model of the SD100 directly from manufacturers specification sheets and inspection of actual vehicle. The original RTD standard color scheme was applied. The model was created at no cost to the project. The RTD standard color scheme was applied.
POITRA then created a 3D site model that included the track bed, rails, overhead catenary system and POITRA model Siemens Duewag 100 LRT vehicle. The model was camera matched, lighted, rendered and composited with the base photograph to create the final simulation.
POITRA graphic artists created a display panel for each simulation in the Southeast Corridor EIS series to be printed for public meetings.
The finished photo-simulations were used in CDOT and RTD's meetings with the City of Denver and other governmental and public stakeholders. The final images were also used in project environmental documents.
