3D GeoInfo Conference 2010 in Berlin

The 5th International 3D GeoInfo Conference 2010 (Berlin, November 3-4) brings together international state-of-the-art research and facilitates dialogue on emerging topics in the field of 3D geo-information. In recent years, research has focused on improving 3D data acquisition technology through:
  • Remote sensing
  • Photogrammetry
  • Laser altimetry techniques (LiDAR)
  • Visualization technology (3D CAD and Virtual Reality (VR) system) for 3D urban environments

The resulting 3D models can be maintained in several types of 3D models:
  • TEN (Tetrahedral Network)
  • Constructive Solid Geometry (CSG) models
  • Regular Polytopes
  • TIN Boundary representation and 3D volume quad edge structure
  • Layered/topology models
  • Voxel-based models
  • 3D models used in urban planning/polyhedrons
  • N-dimensional models including time

Still, researchers face many challenges today regarding the development of suitable data models representing topological relationships among 3D spatial objects in built environments.
