The animation consists of three parts; an introduction to the design, an explanation of the development technique and a glance into the future of the Marker Wadden. XKP constructed a 3D visualization model based on elevation maps and sketches of the islands.

Ring Utrecht

Road Project Information Map

Rijkswaterstaat plans to upgrade the Ring Utrecht. The ring road has a total length of 24 kilometers and consists of sections of three highways and two complex junctions.

The Road Project Information Map is a very effective tool for visualizing such a large scale road project. Users can zoom in on the route from one large overview. The side bar gives extra and more detailed information about all the different parts of the route on different zoom levels. This enables people living in the vicinity of the highway to easily find the information that they are looking for: how does this upgrade affect my personal situation?

A9 Badhoevedorp – Holendrecht

Project animations

For the road project A9 Badhoevedorp – Holendrecht XKP also produced several animations that are used by Rijkswaterstaat for stakeholder engagement.

The project animation, produced to support the publication of the preliminary design report, gives a clear introduction of the project and explains the plans for all three highway sections. The animation on the new traffic square near Amstelveen shows the future driving routes.

A9 Badhoevedorp – Holendrecht

Road Project Information Map

Rijkswaterstaat plans to upgrade the A9 between Badhoevedorp and Holendrecht to a four lane highway. Near Amstelveen the road will run through a 1,3 kilometer long underpass.

The Road Project Information Map let’s users compare the existing and future situation. Photo montages give a clear insight into the upcoming changes, especially near Amstelveen where the surrounding area will undergo a real transformation. The Noise Level Map shows the measures Rijkswaterstaat will take to prevent further sound pollution.

New Delft

3D City Map

The area around Delft station is undergoing a big transformation now that the railway viaduct that ran through the city has been demolished.

Ontwikkelingsbedrijf Spoorzone Delft commissioned XKP to make an interactive 3D city map to provide insight into the development of the masterplan for Nieuw Delft. The map shows a 3D visualisation of the plan, edited into an an aerial view of the project location. Users can zoom in on the image and find additional information by clicking on the different buildings blocks.

US Wind -Sparrow Point

Explainer animation

A new industry, Offshore Wind, is coming to Sparrow Point. This place once played an important role in the history of the United States, but the steel mill closed a long time ago. US wind plans to produce the components needed to build a major offshore wind energy project in the Atlantic Ocean, miles off the coast of Maryland.

The animation shows the history of the Sparrow Point yards and gives a glimpse into the future.

Northern Ring Road Utrecht

Project Information

The municipality of Utrecht plans to overhaul the Northern Ring Road Utrecht to improve traffic flow. Motorists now cut through residential areas to avoid traffic jams.
