Three-Dimensional GIS - Fall 2017

December 1, 2017 - 1:30pm to 3:30pm

Lead/Instructor: Paul Cote

It is now common for municipalities to collect data about the heights and three-dimensional shape of buildings.  These data, along with terrain models and two-dimensional groundplan information makes it possible to use GIS to create useful three-dimensional models of large areas.  These models may be used to visualize design scenarios, as a contextual framework for sensor networks and many other applications.  Participants in this workshop will learn to render GIS data in 3D and to perform studies of visual connectivity.
