POITRA created the photo-simulation on an Engineer provided photograph. The original photograph contained commercial building construction that needed to be 'completed' by POITRA in the final simulation. The existing laneage and traffic was also shifted to match the conceptual design plans and other corridor element were added. These tasks were accomplished using traditonal digital painting techniques.
The Siemens Duewag 100 LRT vehicle was the study's prefered vehicle. Modelers at POITRA had previously created a detailed technical model of the SD100 directly from manufacturers specification sheets. The special Valley Metro Tempe Red Train 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 models were 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 Valley Metro Tempe series to be printed for public meetings.
The finished photo-simulations were used in Valley Metro's meetings with the City of Tempe and other governmental and public stakeholders. The final images were also used in project environmental documents.
