3D digital data is an integral piece of the food production puzzle. Elevation data provides information that directly relates to the ability of land capability. Aspect, or the direction that slopes face, does as well since it is related to the amount of available sunlight and day length as well as impacting temperatures. Most people [...]

An interesting article in Information Age that describes how the Tableau Software company came about. “In 2003, Stanford University PhD student Chris Stolte presented a novel approach to data visualisation. Rather than composing graphs after data analysis is complete, Stolte proposed a system where the fundamental principles of data visualisation – such as which types of [...]

There are numerous benefits when mapping flight paths in 3D. Aviation Mapper is a Google Earth based 3D mapping program that can be used to present 3D aviation flight for aircraft, for example in Sydney, Australia. ACARS messages are decoded in this process. Individual airplanes can be tracked and clicking on them will zoom into [...]

Research has revealed that high-resolution topographic data plays an important role in climate modelling. In a study based on the coasts of the Aegean Sea, scientists found that both both horizontal and vertical resolutions for 3D coastal data helped to prepare more accurate models. “The horizontal resolution used for current regional climate simulations over most of [...]

Many 3D applications depend upon accurate and precise 3D location data. Higher levels of accuracy as provided through GNSS technologies and the data gathered through them, enable improved quality and more precise work where location matters and positioning is integral to the business. GNSS can include augmentation systems designed to improve the functioning and performance [...]
