Innovations in 3D Geo Information Systems
Three-dimensional (3D) geoinformation has been the subject within geoinformation (GIS) community and other related professionals since early 90's. Recently the subject is getting more attention when users de mand better information of the phenomena and of the surrounding objects. A lot of efforts and time have been invested for this kind of 3D geoinfor mation solution but operationally such system is still hardly available in mass market. For this reason the Department of Geoinformatics, Faculty of Geoin formation Science and Engineering, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia took the initiative to organize the first International Workshop on 3D Geoin formation held in South East Asia, held on 7-8 August, 2006, Kuala Lum pur, Malaysia. The workshop has covered fundamental aspects of 3D geoinformation as well as 3D data collection (LIDAR and other means), 3D spatial data modeling, 3D databases, 3D spatial analysis, 3D visualiza tion, and some applications in 3D geoinformation. This workshop has gathered researchers, system developers, practitio ners, and end users from 21 countries, coming from 5 different continents. They have the great opportunity to discuss new research development, ideas, theories, and possible applications in this very specialized but fast emerging field.
Covers various aspects of spatial data modelling specifically on the aspect of three-dimensional (3D) modelling and structuring
