How Geospatial Trends Are Influencing Architecture, Engineering, Construction

The ability to append diverse sources of information into a single geospatial model that can be a CAD drawing, a 3D software representation of an image or a map has enriched geospatial information for users and has enabled them to work with more holistic views of projects. This is why companies that include geospatial technology in their strategic roadmaps will find themselves ahead in the game.

3D Laser Scanning Takes BIM To A New Level

The bottom line for companies in the surveying and construction industries is that 3D laser scanning as a complement to BIM will be an absolute requirement in large government and private sector projects in the near future, if not already. For companies that are less involved with these large contracts, 3D laser scanning should be on their technology roadmaps as a future acquisition in the next three years.

Creating A New World Of Reality

New approaches to visualization and modeling are adding value and flexibility to 3D data. LiDAR and digital imaging are major drivers behind this change. In just a few years, technologies for scanning and photography have matured to become accepted and reliable sources for geospatial data. Now a routine component of the data collection process in many industries, LiDAR and imaging are producing enormous volumes of 3D georeferenced data.
