The advancement of new technology in the geospatial industry is expanding the horizons for surveyors. At the same time, the democratization of geospatial technologies is creating new markets for the industry. Against this backdrop, GIM International proudly presents the ‘3D Modelling and Visualization Weeks’.

Throughout September and October (21 September-23 October), we will be highlighting all the solutions that are involved in turning geodata into a finished geospatial product – with a special focus on the latest ways to process and visualize the data.

Stay informed with our weekly newsletter fully dedicated to the GIM 3D Modelling & Visualization Weeks.
