The Engineer supplied base photograph needed very little modification because the line ran along an existing street behind most of the Old Town buildings. This segment of the line was running on a pre-cast concrete viaduct.
Modelers at POITRA created a detailed technical model of DART's LRT vehicle directly from manufacturers specification sheets provided by DART. The model was given the DART standard paint scheme and markings.
POITRA created a 3D site model that included the proposed LRT viaducts and piers, LRT catenary system, and the POITRA model DART LRT vehicle. Past bridge design experience of POITRA principals made the building the viaduct structures a reletively easy process. The model was then camera matched, lighted, rendered and composited with the base photograph to produce the final simulation.
The finished simulation was used in meetings with the city, the public and other stakeholders and in project documents.
