3D Modelling

The creation, visualisation and use of three-dimensional representations of real or virtual world terrains, surfaces, elevations and built objects

Three-dimensional models are used increasingly in the public and private sectors and in academic research to visualise and analyse real or virtual world features and objects. This topic encompasses the creation of 3D geometric models from captured spatial data and their use in applications that include architecture, construction, engineering, urban planning, city and infrastructure modelling, transport and utility network planning and management, asset management, entertainment film production, video gaming and the geosciences. Additionally, the topic covers the creation and use of 3D models that make use of Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality techniques
