Visual simulations are pictures of things that aren't there yet.
Regulatory agencies and the public often want to know — before a project is approved and construction begins — what a project will look like from particularly "sensitive" viewpoints. Some simulations are simple — just adding something small and simple to the picture. Others are very complex — large objects with complex geometry and perspectives in busy settings with lots of clutter in the foreground. It's an interesting challenge, and every simulation is different.
