GIA Intelligent Mapping
3D Strategic Viewing Corridor Map
Their entry '3D Strategic Viewing Corridor Map' displays a 3D viewing corridor from City Hall to the Tower of London.
GIA have taken OS MasterMap topography layer and draped this over OS Land-form profile. They have then attributed LIDAR data to MasterMap to produce an average building height thus allowing them to create a 3D building model along the viewing corridor.
It was the innovative use of height data with OS MasterMap and in particular the intelligence within OS MasterMap that impressed the judges.
