Proprietary Software Enhances Interactive Visualization for Design Analysis and Public Involvement for Architecture, Engineering and Construction Projects
TrueViz(R) Transport is an integrated system of software and procedures that enhances interactive visualization for design analysis and public involvement. The software's code converts linear point-based data found in design output to a series of mathematically defined curves and surfaces. This innovative approach of point-to-curve conversion greatly reduces the amount of data required to convert design files to 3-D. Simply put, TrueViz(R) Transport makes it possible for designers to translate computer-aided design and drafting (CADD) drawings into 3-D visualizations in much less time and with more accuracy. As a result, HNTB is able to present its clients and their stakeholders with more realistic imagery of design alternatives and efficiently incorporate changes before work begins.
TrueViz(R) Transport has been used on a growing list of projects, including:
-- I-64 in St. Louis, Mo. -- I-435/US-69 Corridor in Overland Park, Kan. -- I-405 in Seattle, Wash. -- I-70 in Columbia, Mo. -- I-465 in Indianapolis, Ind. -- I-670 in Kansas City, Mo. -- US 54/K-254 in Wichita, Kan. -- Homestead Miami Racetrack in Miami, Fl.
