These Five Factors Distinguish 3d Maps From Regular Maps
Three dimensional maps also called 3D maps are digital, defined, virtual representation of components of the earth surface, objects and phenomena in nature and society. They are classified, designed and visualised according to the purpose for which they are created.
3D mapping allows users to profile objects in three dimensions, providing the latest technical methods for visualization and information acquisition. A 3D map provides a realistic view of a location that can be utilized by local authorities and regional planners to ensure construction and development in the right order and direction.
3D maps are important because they are more informative and provide in-depth details of the site or location covered. Detailed and concise 3D mapping makes it easier for a response or follow-up team to be aware of the environment they would be dealing in. These maps not only provide proper and exact location direction of the point of action but also suggests the easiest route to pass through.
It presents any terrain in three-dimensional view essentially bringing them to life or giving them a life-like view which makes it easier for the map user to find, locate or navigate through such landscape. 3D maps use information and coordinates from the real world to gather data that is then presented in a digital form for easy mobility, carriage and deciphering.
There are over seven different kinds of maps, but the following factors distinguish 3d maps from other kinds:
- Perhaps the most important and most visible factor is the fact that 3D maps are projected onto a three-dimensional object so that the image warps and takes the shape of said object. This means that mountains are depicted as and shown to be high above sea level in a way that is not difficult to understand. Other physical objects as well are coloured and shaped to look natural so incidence of error or confusion in reading are minimal.
- 3D maps provide very realistic descriptions and depictions. For the construction sector, a 3D map is as useful as a blueprint is. It makes for very easy visualisation of floor plans and identification of possible obstructions which may occur during construction.
- It is very flexible. The content that gets projected on the three dimensional object can be altered according to the needs of the projection backdrop.
- It improves communication by providing a more accurate representation of ideas and concepts. Accurate models, dimensions and imagery can help to improve comprehension.
- It allows the user to explore and present several different possibilities in map making, saving time, cost and enhancing better decision making.
The combination of technological advances in modeling, visualization, data collection, storage,and computing power has provided the tools to propel 3D mapping. Geoinfotech produces the best 3D mapping solutions tailored specially for specific use.
