3D agriculture has many potential benefits when it comes to agriculture – since food is grown in 3D. Up until now manufacturers have been developing technologies, often with increased high performance, but have been less prevalent when it comes to connecting the dots to provide end-to-end solutions. Earlier, Trimble advanced the concept for connecting technology [...]

The use of maps is an integral piece of the intelligence puzzle for gathering information about a particular situation or environment. Vast gains have been made in recent times for not only displaying such information, but assembling the linkages between disparate sources of information into collections or operating pictures that are more easily understood, actionable [...]

I had the opportunity to work with Cheetah 3D recently and to review it.. More than a modeling, animation and rendering, the software includes something called Bullet Physics, which enables collections of objects to move relative to gravity – for example several balls bouncing off of a wall or each other. Running under Mac OS [...]

Last week the Topcon Corporation Headquarters, based in Japan, restructured the company and created a new organizational structure. What was Topcon Positioning Systems Inc, becomes the Positioning Company (products include GNSS, machine control and agriculture). Additionally, what was the Positioning Business Unit now becomes the Smart Infrastructure Company (products include total stations, 3D scanning, mobile [...]

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 [...]

Cornelius König at Scalypso tells me that their company produces a unique 3D laser scanning data analysis software. The company states, “…The evaluation of the 3D laser scan data is not in a 3D point cloud, but in the photo-realistic 2.5D representation of 3D data. This is calculated from the reflectance values of the laser scan (grayscale) or the [...]

The folks at Fertile Minds in Australia published an entry that describes how shade trees along roads can significantly reduce the cost of road repair (maybe this explains why all the German Landesstraßen seem in such good shape). The sun is the culprit for damaging many roads apparently, resulting in roads heating up to very high [...]

EventIDE is a .NET framework that now works with Microsoft’s KINECT product. Recent work has resulted in the development of full 3D body sensing and tracking that is shown in a short film (here). “The tracking method is based on automatic recognition of human body parts on a visual scene and estimation of 3D joint [...]
