Intermap Technologies and G-VR Agreement

Intermap Technologies has announced an agreement with G-VR Limited to produce optimised triangulated irregular network (TIN) models created from Intermap\'s digital terrain elevation data. Optimised TIN models (OTMs) are used by engineering firms working with a wide range of computer-aided design applications, including landscape modeling, engineering and design, architectural visualisation, and computer gaming.   OTMs can be combined with other geospatial layers and imagery data to create powerful and useful 3D visualisations. For instance, a landscape modeling application can use an OTM to provide the shape of particular landforms prior to development. The complete 3D visualisation will show viewers how... (read more)
