Thesis Topic/Title
3D GIS and Applications

Description

3D GIS offers new insights into spatial data for 3D modelling and visualisation and has attracted increasing interest in a wide range of applications. Technologies for high quality terrain and other 3D object data acquisition are advancing rapidly. Recently, it has been shown that airborne and terrestrial laser scanning systems provide efficient way to acquire high-quality 3D data. Innovation in 3D modelling technologies and software such as 3D visualisation environment of ArcScene and ArcGlobe in ArcGIS, KML (Keyhole Markup Language) in support of presentation of GIS data in Google Earth, CityGML and newly available Esri CityEngine for 3D city modelling, make it possible to efficient 3D visualisation and modelling. Potential master and PhD students can select 3D GIS topics they are interested in:
• Multi-source 3D data integration for 3D modelling
• 3D modelling and geodatabase integration
• 3D city modelling and applications
• Integration of 3D GIS and Building Information Modeling (BIM)
• 3D technologies for urban and regional planning
• 3D GIS for natural resources and environmental management
• 3D utility management
• 3D cadastre.
