POITRA photographed several views of the Auraria Station site with the intent of describing its new LRT character in context. Once the final view was selected some the existing elements such as fences had to be removed to match the Engineer's proposed LRT station design. The modified photograph then served as the base image for proposed LRT simulation.
Once again, thank you for all your help in creating a great product! The simulations were one of the highlights of the meeting - many people were enticed. Your work helped to describe to people what the stations will likely look like.”

Modelers at POITRA had previously created a detailed technical model of RTD's Siemens Duewag 100 LRT vehicle directly from manufacturers specification sheets. The newly adopted RTD color scheme was applied.
POITRA then created a 3D site model that included the track bed, rails, LRT platforms, station amenities, canopies, catenary system and POITRA model RTD Siemens Duewag 100 LRT vehicles. The model was camera matched, lighted, rendered and composited with the base photograph. Landscaping and station patrons were added to create the final LRT photo-simulation.
Graphic artists at POITRA set the simulation in a display board format with simulation location map for printing. The finished displays were used in meetings with the city, Auraria representatives and public stakeholders. The final images were also used in project environmental documents.
