Testimonial: Municipality Drimmelen & Royal HaskoningDHV
Royal HaskoningDHV was commissioned by the Municipality of Drimmelen to further elaborate the redevelopment plans for the village center of Terheijden into a final design and set of specifications. Simultaneously with the above-ground redevelopment, the sewerage will be replaced and the first part of a new heat grid will be realized. These types of projects often invoke a lot of questions among residents. In order to inform all stakeholders and to actively involve them in the project, the municipality asked RoyalHaskoningDHV to draw up 3D visualizations of the village center containing the Cyclomedia LiDAR Point Cloud. Martijn Poleij, GIS Specialist of Regional Development & Infrastructure, supervises the visualizations of this project from RoyalHaskoningDHV and has used the Cyclomedia LiDAR Point Cloud for this.
All of these changes happening in the center generates many questions from residents. The municipality of Drimmelen wants to inform all stakeholders as best it can. Thanks to the recognizable and easy-to-interpret visualizations of the center, everyone has a good idea of the municipality's redevelopment plans. Using virtual reality with the integrated point cloud, the residents can literally walk through the new streets of the village center. This way, residents, the municipality and its policymakers, shopkeeper associations and all other stakeholders are directly involved in the implementation of the project. This avoids miscommunication and creates more room to focus on improvements in the center together with these stakeholders.
