Transportation Graphics

Worth a thousand words.

The ability to show proposed roadway changes as opposed to talking about them is an enormous advantage for an audience who may not have an understanding of transportation engineering. We are committed to creating clear and precise graphics for any need.

Enhanced Typical Sections

An enhanced typical is created to give a better understanding of what a section of a corridor might look like in the real world.

The advantage of an enhanced typical over a standard typical is that a higher level of detail can be included to show grass, sidewalks, striping, curb and gutter, bike lines, and any other information needed. Each image can be rendered at any size to accommodate large format print needs.

An enhanced typical provides a much clearer understanding of the proposal than a standard typical section which is invaluable to a client.

  • Gives a better visual understanding of corridor
  • Can be rendered at any size

Photo Simulations / Before-And-Afters

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.

  • Side-by-side comparison communicates changes effectively
  • Professional, high quality digital compositions

3D Modeling

3D modeling is used to create highly realistic objects or environments that can be viewed from any angle and be rendered at any print size. 3D modeling is often utilized when an existing photo is not available for a before-and-after and the entire roadway, corridor, or environment must be constructed from scratch.

  • Can be viewed from any angle
  • Created using industry standard software


A fly-through is a movie that is shown from the camera’s point of view as it moves through virtual 3D space. This movie gives the viewer a sense of what the environment might look like as if they were driving through the corridor in a car or flying by in a helicopter. A fly-through will take the viewer down a specific path, highlighting points of interest. This is one of the best tools available for communicating a concept, product, roadway, bridge, park, or corridor in a clear and effective manner. Fly-throughs can be burned to DVDs, CDs, viewed on web pages, television programs, and included in PowerPoint presentations for public meetings and proposals.
