Hong Kong: Remote Sensing professionals and scientists who wish to enhance presentation of their projects can now add 3rd dimension to 2D satellite images/aerial photos. This special 3D processing service is provided by Geocarto International Centre (GIC) in Hong Kong.
Unlike 3D modelling which only generates perspective view, 3D pictures provided by Geocarto does not need glasses to experience 3D effect. For further information, one can visit www.geocarto.com.hk/project
True 3D satellite images and aerial photos are more impressive for display, exhibition, promotion, demonstration, presentation and planning. They enhance visualisation of terrain and facilitate monitoring of construction projects. They are custom-made permanent hard copy and can be produced in various sizes and any number of copies. Such 3D processing may be accomplished with either 2D digital images or stereo pairs of digital images using lenticular technology.
GIC in Hong Kong, promotes the multi-disciplinary research and application of remote sensing, GIS, geoscience, and cartography through publications, professional exhibitions, software and data marketing and distribution, and consulting. The centre is also the publisher of the book, Remote Sensing with IDRISI Taiga: A Beginner’s Guide, and a wide range of 3D imagery items.
