||3D GIS - Exploring the capabilities of GIS for the visualisation of land, air, sea and subterranean environments|
Understanding the 3D world is an increasingly important for decision making in the commercial, government, defence and engineering business space. Modelling and depicting 3D environments in a clear, intuitive way has proved to be challenging in the past. This workshop will explore the advances in the 3D visualisation of GIS data.
Presenters will discuss the application of 3D GIS to marine, subterranean, land (urban) and aeronautical environments respectively.

Geology and 3D
Although essentially subterranean, geology has a major influence on the land, the sea and even the air. In the last year there have been significant geological events that have effected millions of people both directly and indirectly. Geology is omnipresent and multidimensional. This presentation will show how the BGS is using the latest 3D GIS techniques to build then interoperably publish and visualise 3D geology at all scales, ranging from individual fossils to global resources.

Practical aspects and Challenges of 3D Visualization and Analysis for Air Operations
Visualization and Analysis in 3D is one among a number of upcoming trends within the realm of Defense Air Command & Control and Civilian Air Traffic Management / Air Traffic Control. During the presentation, Luciad will highlight these upcoming trends, with an emphasis on 3D Visualization and Analysis. Luciad will present some typical use cases of 3D in functional applications in the Air domain, and will also focus on the practical challenges that typically need to be addressed by 3D GIS / 3D applications. These challenges lie both in the field of technology (how should it be done?), and in the field of the user experience (how should it be presented to the user?)

3D for everyone, cloud building and crowd sourcing the earth
As the world is becoming both more globally aware but also more locally connected Google Earth provides a platform for everyone and anyone to build and share geospatial information from small to large scale data, within such diverse areas as War Zones to Environmental projects. Come see hows it's done!
