SceneViz for Collaboration
The Seattle Streetcar project team used SceneViz to visualize streetscape plans and discuss design and safety issues with stakeholders.
This SceneViz presentation was designed for use in a courtroom. Witnesses can select a location, zoom to a street-level view, and then use the resulting diagram to better explain their memory of the incident.
This animation was used at a public meeting to help stakeholders compare existing street conditions to one of several design alternatives under consideration.
No man is an island. And Rome wasn’t built in a day. We all know that real-world accomplishments are achieved through collaboration.
Increasingly, projects require collaboration across professional disciplines and amongst a variety of stakeholders. Effective communication with all members of a project team is essential to establish buy-in and drive informed, effective decisions. Sure, you can mail out files, present a slideshow, and follow up with a survey, but that dreaded feeling can linger… did something get missed?
Let Fat Pencil Studio put your mind at ease. We have a well-honed process called SceneViz that increases the depth and quality of collaboration, using a digital 3d model of your project that can be manipulated in real time. When stakeholders see the real-world implications of their ideas on screen, it sets up “Aha!” moments that make a project successful.
A Three-Step Process
We have used this process in situations ranging from public meetings to courtrooms to conference calls. It works equally well in person or remotely, and uses open-source technologies freely available to anyone with a computer. If you’d like to see a demonstration of SceneViz in action, please give us a call at 503.465.4533.
