3D Mobile Mapping Technology Inspires Positive Change

Future Proofing Singapore
Singapore is home to some of the most profitable financial services, manufacturing and oil-refining corporations in the world. An island state just off the coast of southern Malaysia, its small size has clearly not impeded the success of residents or firms choosing to locate themselves there. But with its accomplishments come some very specific challenges for a city which is limited by space but still demanding growth. This article discusses how 3D mobile mapping is contributing to one of the most ambitious digital twinning projects the world has ever seen, in the hopes of paving the way for better future-proofing...

Interacting with Big Geospatial Data

Methods for Virtual Exploration and Visual Analysis
Advances in capturing techniques such as laser scanning and photogrammetry have significantly increased the volume of geospatial datasets. Big geodata has become an important asset for analysis and decision-making, but also poses a challenge for state-of-the-art visualisation techniques. This article presents research results addressing this problem for the infrastructure and planetary science application domains. The methods discussed here enable users to fluently explore and efficiently analyse the growing wealth of geospatial data.  The data volume of 3D reconstructions is steadily growing for two reasons. Firstly, there is a demand to increase the accuracy of data acquisition, now reaching even sub-millimetre... (read more)
