3D GIS is revolutionary. As more tools become 3D oriented, the real world will become easier to understand for many people. What you cannot see or understand in 2D, will make more sense in 3D / 4D. In the case of urban planning basic infrastructure will form the foundation for most cities. In as much [...]

In a recent article in The Hindustan entitled ‘Lack of ‘tall buildings’ slows down govt’s 3D data project‘ the case is being made that the 3D GIS Delhi State Spatial Data Infrastructure project is not doing well. Apparently the project depends on cameras for continuous monitoring for 3D city modelling purposes. A lack of tall buildings, [...]

In the blog post The City Limits II: The City Hinterland, the author describes cities in terms of their size. Areal area is one way of investigating and establishing the size of a city. The 2D area is calculated readily today using mapping and geographic information systems (GIS). Indeed, in a later post the blog does [...]

The advances in 3D technologies have profound implications for the medical industry. While 3D is certainly not new to medicine, new technologies from 3D dental imaging to heart disease imaging and orthopedic imaging among others are filling important pieces to the 3D human body. In many of the applications the imaging or 3D technology is [...]

Google Blog has announced that the new 3D City Map is coming in it’s Google Earth product. New 3D buildings will be extracted from its own imagery, a process that other companies and software have been providing for some time. Is this new? It might be for Google Earth, but 3D City Models have been [...]

Being able to integrate various forms of spatial data with geographic information systems (GIS) is a powerful way for engaging audiences and individuals. Holograms are no exception and the people at Zebra Imaging have been able to include point clouds into the process, presenting 3D objects and visualizations together with GIS related data. This linkage [...]

We are heading toward a sensored future with augmented reality, real-time tracking and the continued advancement of spatial technologies in 3D and 4D. Mobility is a large part of the future footprint. But the legal aspects that arise through these technologies is not only interesting, but likely to cause us to scratch our heads a [...]

The global positioning system (GPS) is directly applicable to the development of 3D applications that include augmented reality. Liveline is an example of this in action. “ LiveLine superimposes graphics on the screen as a technical aid for viewers, like ahead-behind lines that enable audiences to clearly see who is leading the race and race-course boundaries. [...]

Many people are commenting on why Google would sell the 3D drawing software SketchUp to Trimble. The answer, I think, is simple – any tool that will ultimately include high precision measurement data, will need a spatial analysis environment for it’s full value to be realized. SketchUp alone is nice, but coupling high quality land [...]

Writing in newgeography in an article entitled ‘Homebuilding Recovery: How CAD Stifles Solutions‘ , author Rick Harrison “addresses how a reliance on CAD software and a lack of collaboration stifle sustainable land development solutions.” “CAD was intended as a drafting tool to serve hundreds of purposes within a multi-billion dollar software industry. To serve all [...]
