3D Geographic Information Systems in Detail
The 3D Geographic information system is a very popular technology utilized by the scientific community, natural resource management groups, environmental study groups, urban planners, hazard study groups, law enforcement, habitat mapping, as well as the military.
Many may not know this but many governments and agencies nowadays that deal with location and geographic management and studies are shifting their attention to using 3D technologies to aid them in their objectives. There are many limitations to the traditional 2D GIS technology and many problems faced by GIS users could only be solved using 3D GIS systems. As such, most GIS software are updating their systems to adopt 3D technologies because 2D GIS systems are now beginning to be considered obsolete.
