Second DMC for Cartographic Institute of Catalonia

The Cartographic Institute of Catalonia (ICC) (Spain) has purchased a second Intergraph Z/I Imaging DMC (Digital Mapping Camera) system. ICC's satisfaction with its first DMC purchase in late 2004 has prompted the purchase of a second camera. ICC, the first organisation in Europe to own two Intergraph DMC systems, will use its second camera to extend its existing digital cartographic production projects and provide shorter and higher-quality image production cycles, effectively shutting down its analogue production line.

Laser-scanned Point Clouds to Visualise Stage Productions

Theatrework UK, a Scottish production company, is using laser scanners and 3D computer modelling technology to help visualise stage productions. Using Pointfuse software, laser scanned data – point clouds – are processed in minutes to create highly accurate 3D models. These models allow production designers to conceptualise ideas within the venue scans and technical staff to visualise touring productions at different venues. Venues can use the imagery to plan for visiting companies and scans, complete with designed elements, can be shared online using Pointfuse to reduce and enhance the visualisations. The Pointfuse models can be integrated with other types of... (read more)
