Anna Maria Bridge + VR
The Florida Department of Transportation’s continuing mission is to provide a safe transportation system that ensures the mobility of people and goods, enhances economic prosperity, and preserves the quality of our environment and communities.
Digital Tap created a set of 10 spherical conceptual renderings for the Florida Department Of Transportation, District One in order to assist their public outreach activities with showcasing aesthetic features of the upcoming new high-level fixed bridge. The final images were then exported as interactive panorama images in a format viewable with immersive technology such as Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Google VR and more.
Ready, set, go for VR
An interactive web-based interface was also developed and customized to allow viewers to navigate, view and interact with the spherical renderings using a standard web browser. This interface also allows the use of WebVR compatible hardware for viewing with compatible smart phones, VR headsets and other forms of immersive technology.
There is nothing like a dream to create the future.
A “before-and-after” is created to show the differences between existing conditions and proposed changes. These images can be compared side by side to give a better understanding of the proposed concept. A photo of existing conditions is used as the “before” picture. The proposed changes are then created in a digital environment and aligned to match the camera angle of the original photo. These graphics are then composited on top of the before picture to produce the “after” image.
…their 3D\VR rendering on Anna Maria received high praise from FDOT and from local municipalities, including the Mayor of Holmes Beach.
