4D Traffic Visualization creates a state-of-the-art virtual world that integrates the physical environment, design plans, AND actual traffic operations to create a dynamic and interactive 4D model of a proposed project. It is used as a design optimization tool to identify design and operational concerns prior to construction and to facilitate public involvement. You can interactively navigate within the project to view any perspective in real time.
Visualization brings to life – with an unprecedented level of detail – detailed plans with movement of actual cars, buses, trucks, pedestrians, and bicyclists. Visualization is extremely valuable in gaining stakeholder & public understanding, optimizing the design, avoiding costly mistakes and rework, building consensus, stream lining the approval process, and thereby saving time and money. It builds credibility during public presentations while satisfying federal requirements to “Employ visualization techniques to describe plans”.
