RAIL AND TRANSIT
SILK, a USD 625,000 information system for railway lines, was developed to
improve decision making for modernizing and developing state railways in
Poland. PKP Polskie Linie Kolejowe created this information system as a spatial
reference system that catalogs and shares information related to investment,
real estate property, and inventory.
The company used Bentley PowerMap, MicroStation, Bentley Geospatial
Server, and Project Wise to develop SILK. Project Wise enabled users to more
efficiently and quickly distribute files and data and to centralize information,
and improved information access led to better communications and data flow as
well as time and money savings in managing railway investments.

Information System for Railway Lines (SILK)
The USD 1. 4 billion Fulton Street Transit Center project in lower Manhattan,
N. Y., integrates five existing stations and a national historic landmark building
into one transport hub. To convey the scale of the project to stakeholders,
Arup worked with Bentley’s Applied Research Group to produce an augmented
reality model of the site. The model displayed the project elements overlain on a
360-degree photo panorama.
Viewable on a tablet device, the model was geo-referenced and included
data on above-ground and underground infrastructure. The model can be
interrogated and manipulated to reveal component details and data layers.
Bentley Navigator, and iPad apps were used to produce the desired effect,
enabling on-site and off-site personnel to interact with the model.
