Over the last decade, 3D visualisation has become more prominent within the mapping and geospatial communities. Similarly, the simulation community have been making use of the increasingly rich and widely available geospatial data when generating terrain models. This move has come partly through the development of technology enabling the 3D display of geospatial data on a broad range of devices including mobile platforms.
Traditionally, these two communities have worked relatively independently from each other. This has led to both developing different techniques and processes for using this data in a range of 2D and 3D applications. Initially, this independent development resulted in some differing and in some cases conflicting approaches. However, changing requirements including the need for consistent data that can be distributed across domains is now resulting in the development of new techniques that now resemble those of the other side.
In this talk, we will look at some of the history of how this has come about, the impact this this is having on the two communities, the trends within 3D mapping and simulation that are influencing these changes, the applications of these activities and how the communities can work closer together in the future.
This event has been organised by the South regional committee.
This event is recognised by the Society as being suitable professional development for Chartered Geographer and may also be suitable for other professional accreditations.
