Getmapping launches software for urban planning

Getmapping.com, a supplier of aerial photography in UK has recently announced the launch of SIMurban, a 3D World Simulator that promises to revolutionise the future of sustainable planning and development. Getmapping business partner Simmersion Holdings Ltd has developed the SIMurban World Simulator, which is a suite of software designed for 3D visualisation and real time interaction with any real world built environment. Organisations and businesses using digital map information are today placing increasing importance on the use of aerial geographic imagery to better manage activities and assets associated with land-use, people, transport and communications. By combining Getmapping’s ultra-detailed aerial photography and height data to create a visual context ‘wallpaper’, SIMurban enables users to place 3D objects into an authentic ‘on screen’ terrain to generate a photorealistic 3D world from anywhere in the UK – all at accelerated speed on standard desktop hardware.
