ntt digitalglobeNTT DATA Corporation and DigitalGlobe, Inc. announced an agreement to extend their strategic partnership to produce large-scale 3D vector building model datasets, called AW3D Metro. This will combine NTT DATA’s elevation expertise with DigitalGlobe’s high-resolution imagery and platform capabilities to one of the highest resolution 3D datasets that offers significant coverage and rapid delivery timelines. NTT DATA, as one of the leading providers in global elevation data with its AW3D® series, will create off-the-shelf 3D vector building, vegetation and bridge models using DigitalGlobe’s Geospatial Big Data platform (GBDX) and imagery. GBDX, a powerful, cloud-based tool with access to DigitalGlobe’s 100 petabyte imagery archive, can harness machine learning algorithms to revolutionize traditional 3D production models. By using NTT DATA’s cutting-edge algorithm on GBDX, the two companies will be able to develop AW3D Metro in a more cost-effective and timely manner. Read More
